About Us - Reporting

The Assessement and Reporting Practices at Diamond Creek East Primary School have been designed to assist the improvement of student learning outcomes. The Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS) outlines the expected learning, progression from Foundation to Year 10 in each Learning Area. The major components of Assessment and Reporting at Diamond Creek East Primary School are:

 
3 Way Conferences - two "3 Way Conferences" are scheduled each year, one in term 1 and the second in term 3.
 
Formal Written Report - the mid-year and end of year reports assess children according to VELS, and standards and sets focus for future learning. This focus will develop improvement goals and means of achieving these through school and home activities.
 
Student Portfolios - the portfolio contains assessment tasks completed by children in a variety of learning areas. It also provides children with the oppotunity to reflect on their own learning and set their own improvement goals.
 
The Cumulative File - the collection of student reports and formal tests and referrals assists in monitoring student progress.
Parents are encouraged to contact teachers if they wish to discuss any issues concerning their child/ren and their progress. They can then arrange for an appointment at a mutually convenient time.
