iii) The manner in which every assessment or examination for every course will be conducted

Melbourne Specialist International School- Assessment Summary Sheet

Assessment definition

Assessment at MSIS is an ongoing process of gathering, analysing and reflecting on evidence to make informed and consistent judgements to improve the future of our students learning.

Purpose of our student assessments

Students at MSIS are assessed qualitatively. The student reports will contain a description provided by the school, on the personal qualities of the student.  The assessment will capture the student’s strengths as an individual, as well as the areas where he/she has displayed growing maturity or development. Students who complete schooling with MSIS until the age of 18 receive a Certificate of Graduation.

Assessment for improved student learning requires a range of assessment practices to be used with three main purposes:

  • Assessment FOR learning – occurs when teachers use inferences about student progress to inform their teaching
  • Assessment AS learning – occurs when students reflect on and monitor their progress to inform their future learning goals
  • Assessment OF learning – occurs when teachers use evidence of student learning to make judgements on student achievement against goals and standards.

Every student at MSIS will receive an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) that is developed through a Student Support Group Meeting (SSG) that outlines what Educational Objectives will be prioritised for that student for each academic year (see ILP Process below).

SAT

Student Assessments Tools

Student assessments are made up of the following tools.

  • Educational Objective Checklists
  • Video footage
  • Photographs
  • Student Work Product
  • Electronic portfolios (photographic evidence of student work backed up in school file for each student)
  • Bi-annual student reports (Term 2 & Term 4)
