Part 1: Assessment Policy
  1.1       Message from the Leader of Curriculum

Assessment:
NESA states that assessment is the broad name for the collection and evaluation of evidence
of a student's learning. It is integral to teaching and learning and has multiple purposes.
Assessment can enhance student engagement and motivation, particularly when it
incorporates interaction with teachers, other students and a range of resources.

At St John’s College, Woodlawn teachers use assessment to evaluate student progress,
identify student needs and modify practice.

The College assessment policy has been developed in compliance with the Lismore Catholic
Schools’ Learning and Teaching Domain statement. The policy draws teachers’ attention
to the 4 critical questions in guiding student learning:
    • What should students know and be able to do?
    • How will we know that students have learned it?
    • How will we structure the learning experiences to ensure students learn?
    • How will we respond when students do not learn it and when they already know it?

The value of assessing what students can do and how they learn is integral to the development
of the relationship between the student and the teacher.

Assessment tasks can be designed to indicate what the student has learned or to assist the
student to learn.

If your son/daughter has difficulty in completing an assessment task the first person to contact
is the classroom teacher. If your son/daughter has difficulty in organising time and managing
the assessment task the first person to contact is the Home Group Teacher, then the Year
Level Welfare Coordinator. The tasks set are designed to engage the student in learning. It
is essential that students set goals, write tasks in their planner and work so that they do not
leave things to the last minute.

  1.2       Rationale
        •    Assessment is a system using standards referenced frameworks. It involves tasks
             designed to produce an image of what students have achieved at a particular point
             in the teaching and learning process relative to the outcomes for the course.
             Assessment provides a link between the syllabus and performance standards.

        •    The Assessment policy is developed from specific advice relating to assessment
             in individual courses in subject handbooks and circulars published by the NSW
             Education Standards Authority.
             It is designed with:

                (i) a focus on outcomes

                (ii) a range of task types

               (iii) students knowing and understanding the outcomes to be assessed

               (iv) marking schemes based on the outcomes to be assessed.

Year 8 2021 Assessment Book                                                           Page 3
•    Assessment is a process of identifying, gathering and interpreting information
             about a student’s learning.

        •    The St John’s College Assessment Policy recognises the rights of parents to
             receive regular reports on student achievement and the importance of feedback to
             students on their progress. Parents can view assessment programmes and
             assessment calendars on the College website.

        •    Plain English reporting is a Commonwealth Government requirement which applies
             to all Australian states. It was implemented in 2006. The aim of Plain English
             Reporting, as its name suggests, is to give parents clear feedback on how a student
             is progressing in each subject against set standards. Two written reports should
             be issued annually with opportunities provided for parent interview and
             consultation. In this system of reporting there are two types of reporting data .
             Relative data which indicates how a student compares against specific standards
             A to E and comparative data which indicates how students compare against other
             students in the class. This information, including results of assessment tasks and
             the genesis of grades, is made available to parents on request. All reporting at St
             John’s College reflects the belief that all students can improve and that feedback
             helps students understand the next steps in their learning journey and how they
             can achieve these.

Part 2: Assessment Procedures
St John’s College Woodlawn assessment procedures ensure that every student can achieve
to his/her potential. The purpose of this booklet is to provide an outline of how the College will
assess students in Year 8 in each of the courses. All assessment outlines are developed by
the teachers using the NSW Education Standards Authority syllabus documents for that
course.

  2.1       General Procedures
The College assessment policy has the following goals:

   •    To increase the richness and relevance of assessment.

   •    To emphasise timely feedback that moves learning forward.

   •    To place greater emphasis on the classroom as a place of learning and assessment.

   •    To use assessment as a grounds for modifying teacher practice.

Common tasks and Summative tasks - Stage 4 and 5
Throughout each semester, all students in Years 7-10 will sit two formal Common Tasks and
one common Summative Task. These tasks will inform the Common Grade allocation in
Reports (See below)

Common Tasks
Year 8 2021 Assessment Book                                                            Page 4
•    Common Tasks are to be completed by ALL students in the cohort.

   •    Common Tasks will be completed in class

   •    Common tasks would usually be around 20-30minutes of class time.

   •    Common Tasks are used to build skills, knowledge and confidence so that students
        can achieve success in the Summative Tasks.

   •    Common Tasks will provide students feedback (not grades) so that they can work to
        improve skills, knowledge and understanding prior to completing the Summative
        Task.

Summative Tasks

   •    Summative Tasks are in-class examinations conducted in blocked periods.

   •    Summative Tasks assess a number of topics and skills taught throughout the
        Semester. They should include, but not be limited to, skills and knowledge assessed
        in Common Tasks.

   •    Summative Tasks are not recall tasks. They require students to remember
        content/skills and apply it to a new question or context.

   •    Summative Tasks will be graded and students will receive a mark/grade and feedback.

Notifications - Stage 4 and 5
Students receive initial notification of all tasks for the year as outlined in the Scope and
Sequence. Students will also receive formal notification of all Common and Summative tasks
at least two weeks in advance. Task notifications will include a clear, simple outline of the task
and concise success criteria (this could be a marking criteria, rubric ‘you will be assessed on
how well you…’.) Students will receive a revision/study guide as part of the notification for
Summative Tasks.

Formative Assessment - Stage 4 and 5
In addition to formal tasks, formative activities that are focused on timely feedback are
delivered throughout the teaching cycle. Formative activities do not require notification
because they are part of day-to-day teaching practice.

  2.2    Mandatory Subjects
   • Students in Year 8 will study and need to have satisfactorily completed mandatory
      studies in History, Geography, Technology (Mandatory), Modern Languages (Italian),
      Personal Development, Health and Physical Education, Visual Arts and Music.

Differentiation and scaffolding of assessment tasks - Stage 4 and 5
   • St John’s College Woodlawn follows assessment procedures to ensure that
       every student can achieve their potential. All tasks in Stage 4 and 5 will be
       differentiated so that students at all levels of development can access the task.

   •    If a student has difficulty understanding the requirements of an assessment task
        upon notification, the first person for parents to contact is the classroom

Year 8 2021 Assessment Book                                                            Page 5
teacher. In consultation with the LOL and LOC, the teacher will work out a plan
        to provide extension, support or an alternative task.

   •    Changes to Assessment timetables are only permitted with the approval of the
        Leader of Learning and with appropriate notice to students.

  2.3 Policy for Late / Missed Assessment
   • If a student is ill on the day of an assessment task parents or guardians are
      asked to write a letter to the class teacher. On the student's return to school
      he/she is required to see his/her class teacher and make arrangements for
      the completion of the task.

   •    If a student knows that they will be absent for an assessment he/she needs to bring a
        letter from home with the reasons for the planned absence and liaise with the subject
        teacher when the task will be completed. It is the student’s responsibility to make the
        arrangements well before the due date.

   •    Students who do not hand in an assessment on the due date or fail to come to an
        assessment task scheduled on that due date, without a valid reason will be deducted
        10% of the available marks for every week day absent. The teacher will determine
        when the student will complete the task or an alternate task.

   •    Computer failure and printer malfunction are not excuses for late assessment. Drafts
        and backup copies may be submitted in these situations.

  2.4       Procedure for submitting an assessment task
All assessment tasks are to be handed in on the due date to the teacher during the class time
for the subject. If the teacher is absent the task is to be handed to the class replacement
teacher.

  2.5       Procedure for asking for an extension for an assessment task
If students know that they will be absent for an assessment they need to bring a letter from
home with the reasons for the planned absence and liaise with the subject teacher to arrange
when the task will be submitted. It is the student’s responsibility to make the arrangements
well before the due date.

2.6 Plagiarism
        What is plagiarism?
       • The use of another person’s words or ideas without stating where they came
          from is a form of theft called PLAGIARISM.

            Why be concerned?
        •    it is dishonest
        •    it is unfair to you and to others
        •    it is illegal under the Copyright Act 1968
Year 8 2021 Assessment Book                                                          Page 6
Deliberate plagiarism
        •     buying or stealing an essay or response
        •     hiring someone to write your report or assignment
        •     copying from any source without citing it

            Accidental plagiarism
        •     using someone’s ideas without reference to that person
        •     using ‘notes’ which are actually ‘quotes’

To avoid plagiarism, the following sources must always be cited:
        •     internet: websites
        •     Magazines/newspapers, pamphlets, books, letters, advertisements
        •     Music, TV programs/movies
        •     Personal interviews.
        •     Teachers/lecturers
        •     Maps, quotations, paraphrases, summaries
        •     Other students’ work, others’ ideas

There is no need to cite:
        •     own experiences
        •     when using common knowledge
        •     own experimental results

Note taking tips to avoid plagiarism:
        •     always write new information in point form
        •     identify your source immediately after every point or phrase
        •     add each new source to a list which will become a bibliography
        •     ensure all details are kept of each source – eg. author, title, publication details,
              website
        •     use your own phrases – don’t rely on exact phrases from the source
        •     put quotation marks around each direct quote (text, table, statistics, logo, image,
              graph, map etc or anything that is not your own work) – record the source and page
              number of the quote and write this next to the quote or as a footnote.

(Taken from Plagiarism Posters 1 to 4, Syba Signs 2002)

For further reminders of these issues, the posters are on display in the Library.

  2.7       Malpractice / Plagiarism / Cheating
   •    Students need to be made aware of the rules associated with plagiarised work.
   •    The teacher who suspects malpractice is to report the offence to the Leader of
        Learning.
   •    Students who are suspected of plagiarism will be interviewed by the Leader of Learning
        and asked to provide evidence of research in note or draft form.
   •    Students who are found to have plagiarised or cheated may receive zero for the task.
   •    Parents will be notified by letter or phone by the Leader of Learning.
   •    In these cases the student is given one week to complete the task or similar task.

Year 8 2021 Assessment Book                                                             Page 7
2.8       Use of the Internet / Computers
        •     We encourage students to use the Internet and other information sources in the
              development of their assignments.
        •     Students must acknowledge sources, the web site address and the date accessed
              is the appropriate method to acknowledge internet sites.
        •     Students are to keep evidence of their research process including notes, plans etc
              in case of computer failure.
        •     In relation to the study of Modern Languages, students are reminded that the use
              of online translation websites (like Google Translate or similar sites) and/or apps
              are considered a form of plagiarism. Suspected use of such sites or apps will be
              investigated by the class teacher and may result in the awarding of a zero mark.

 2.9 Referencing
What is referencing?
        Referencing is a standardised way of acknowledging the sources of information and
        ideas that you have used in your assignments. This allows the sources to be identified.

Why reference?
        Referencing is important to avoid plagiarism, to verify quotations and to enable readers
        to identify and follow up to works to which you have referred.

A System of Reference
        Systems of reference refer to the way students cite the material that they have used in
        their assessments and how they create a reference list or bibliography to acknowledge
        all of the sources they have used in their research.

        It is important to remember that not all systems of reference are the same and that
        different disciplines may have different methods of referencing that they would like you
        to use.

Which referencing style should I use?
        •     There is no standard style used at Woodlawn
        •     In some cases there is a standard style used by a particular discipline, but even
              in those cases it is still possible that a particular teacher or subject may require
              a different style
        •     Students should check with their teacher before they begin their assessment

        Two popular styles of referencing include the Harvard System and the APA System,
        both of which are very similar.

        For more information on the wide range of referencing styles, please refer to the
        following link:

        https://www.library.uq.edu.au/help/referencing-style-guides

What is the difference between a Bibliography and a reference list?
        A reference list includes just the books, articles, and web pages etc that are cited in

2.10 Grades for All Courses
Students are awarded a grade A to E in all subjects. These grades correspond to the General
Performance Descriptors outlined below. The awards of these grades are based solely on the
school's internal assessment of students in their courses.

GENERAL PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTORS

        GRADE The student has an extensive knowledge and understanding of the content
              and can readily apply this knowledge. In addition, the student has
        A
              achieved a very high level of competence in the processes and skills and
              can apply these skills to new situations.

        B           The student has a thorough knowledge and understanding of the content
                    and a high level of competence in the processes and skills. In addition, the
                    student is able to apply this knowledge and these skills to most situations.

        C           The student has a sound knowledge and understanding of the main areas
                    of content and has achieved an adequate level of competence in the
                    processes and skills.

        D           The student has a basic knowledge and understanding of the content and
                    has achieved a limited level of competence in the processes and skills.

        E           The student has an elementary knowledge and understanding in few
                    areas of the content and has achieved very limited competence in some
                    of the processes and skills.

 2.11 Life Skills

       For some students with special education needs, particularly those students with an
       intellectual disability, it may be determined that the assessment tasks and outcomes
       are not appropriate. For these students, Life Skills outcomes and content provide the
       basis for the development of a relevant and meaningful program. The class teacher
       will adjust tasks or negotiate alternative tasks.

Year 8 2021 Assessment Book                                                            Page 9
Part 3: Student Responsibilities

  3.1       NSW Education Standards Authority Requirements
        The NSW Education Standards Authority gives the following criteria for the completion
        of a course.

        "A student will be considered to have satisfactorily completed a course if in the
        principal's view, there is sufficient evidence that the student has:

        (a) followed the course developed or endorsed by the Standards Authority;
        and
        (b)    applied themselves with diligence and sustained effort to the set tasks and
               experiences provided in the course by the school; and
        (c)    achieved some or all of the course outcomes."

  3.2       Student Responsibilities Beyond Assessment Tasks
        Satisfactory application to "in-class" tasks other than "School Assessment Tasks" is
        necessary in order to complete the overall requirements of a course. Students are
        required to have a satisfactory attendance record. They are also required to have a
        satisfactory conduct record.

  3.3       Satisfactory Completion of a Course
        For courses where assessment marks are submitted, students must make a genuine
        attempt at assessment tasks. It is worth noting that students may be requested to
        resubmit any work which is deemed a non-genuine attempt, especially if they have
        received an official warning.

  3.4       Responsibilities of Students
        It is the responsibility of all students in the College to:
        • do each assessment task to the best of their ability;
        •     ensuring that any questions they have about the marks/grades/comments awarded
              for an individual piece of work are resolved at the time the work is handed back;
        •     demonstrate that through effort and achievement they have met the requirements
              of the course.

  3.5       Attendance
        The school expects students to be present for all scheduled classes and school
        functions. If students are absent they must provide written support detailing reasons
        for their absence. Any prolonged absence needs to first be approved by the Principal.
