Years 7 to 12 Progressive Reporting
Over the last few years, the Middle and Senior Years have moved away from semester reports as the primary vehicle for providing information about a student’s progress because such reporting – often months too late – does not align with students’ best academic interests.
What matters is regular, timely and meaningful feedback that immediately identifies what a student is doing well, the areas for improvement and offers ideas and suggestions about how to improve – suggestions that a student can action straight away. This type of feedback shifts the focus of assessing for reporting to assessing for feedback, thereby encouraging in students a growth, rather than a fixed mindset.
Progressive reporting allows students to regularly reflect on their progress, set learning goals, and make improvements during the year. Students have a clear picture of where they are and what they need to do to move to the next level. It also facilitates meaningful discussions between students, parents and teachers about the student’s learning and how they can be further supported or challenged.
Once marking and cross marking has occurred, students and parents will be able to view progressive reports in our learning management system, SEQTA. Parents and students will receive an email notification when this feedback has been released.
To access the progressive reports, select the Assessment tab in the SEQTA Engage menu on the left of the Portal. Select the subject you wish to see, then click on each assessment item to see the results and teacher feedback.
