Assessment of Student Performance

The heart of a good education is quality teaching. Every day, teachers use their training and professional judgement to assess how students are performing and what needs to be done to support them in achieving their full potential. the Australian curriculum will describe the content students will be taught. It will also include descriptions of the achievement that will be expected in each year of schooling. The curriculum will influence the way national assessments are designed to measure student achievement on national scales.

Having access to assessment data helps in a number of important ways; including

* assisting teachers and parents to understand progress in student learning.

* allowing teaches to monitor the gain in student perormance against achievement standards set in the curriculum.

* providing information to evaluate whether current programs are working.

* providing an evidence base that schools can share with parents and their school communities to ensure a common understanding about what action is needed to support student leaning and improvement.
