During the time where students are learning at home, all assessment for Years 5-10 will be formative.  That is, there will be diagnostic activities that inform of a student’s understanding and progress but these will not be reported on at the end of the semester.

In Year 11, all assignment based work will proceed and be submitted as normal unless other arrangements are communicated.  We will be guided by QCAA policy regarding supervised assessments (exams) during this time.  Some exams may run in a timed, online platform with remote supervision.

Assessment for Year 12 will be determined by the QCAA.
