Reports and Grades
School reports provide an overview of each child’s achievement against the Western Australian Curriculum Achievement Standards which represent the “C” grade. These standards reflect the Western Australian Curriculum, which is mandated for use by all schools. The learning standard described by each of the Achievement Standards embodies high expectations of learning achievement.
As the grade requirements change each year, continually increasing in complexity, with students required to demonstrate more complex skills, the grade that students achieve in any semester may change. This does not mean that students are no longer making progress.
It is important to note that for a student to be awarded a “C” grade, using these standards, represents a significant achievement.
What is the A to E grade scale?
The A to E grade scale summarises the standard (or quality) of achievement associated with each grade. The scale describes:
- the depth of knowledge and understanding and
- the range of skills that students working at that standard typically show.
Reports also indicate the level of effort and the attitude and behaviours that students demonstrate in their learning across each semester. Parents should refer to the effort mark, work habits and comments for further insight into the achievement of their child.
