Testing and assessment

Assessment at Gympie Central State School is devised as ‘Assessment of Learning’ and ‘Assessment for Learning’. ‘Assessment for Learning’ is used to diagnose areas of need so teachers can explicitly target student learning requirements. ‘Assessment of Learning’ provides information as to where students are performing academically against the Australian Curriculum achievement standards. These assessment items, often referred to as summative assessment, help our teachers to make consistent and accurate judgements of student work before being used as the basis for reporting.
All summative assessment pieces undergo intra and inter school moderation processes to ensure consistency of judgement.
