How do we assess at Lake Clarendon State School?

Assessment takes various forms and fulfills a variety of purposes:

  • Assessment for learning - enabling teachers to use information about student progress to inform their teaching.
  • Assessment of learning - assisting teachers to use evidence of student learning to assess student achievement against goals and standards
  • Assessment as learning - enabling students to reflect on and monitor their own progress to inform their future learning goals.

Assessment – for learning

At Lake Clarendon State School we have a calendar for data collection. Summative data collected is utilised by teachers to learn about students in preparation for starting a new year. Formative data is collected throughout each unit of work. After learning goals are allocated for each unit a pre-assessment allows teachers to find out what students know and can do already. This informs and shapes the way that students will be taught for each unit. Continuous and regular formative assessments enable teachers to track student progress towards their learning goals.

Assessment – of learning

At Lake Clarendon State School we collate data on distance travelled by collecting work samples through a variety of means as reflected in our whole school assessment plan. This will include evidence provided through systemic and school based testing and through evidence collected in the summative assessments which are part of C2C units.

Assessment – as learning

At Lake Clarendon State School we provide students with opportunities to monitor their progress throughout the teaching and learning cycle in order to reflect on their learning and their progress towards their learning goals. Each student keeps track of their progress towards their goals by recording their results from regular formative assessments. Each week they undergo a feedback session with their teacher to monitor their progress.​
