7. Planning, assessing and reporting


7.4 Conduct summative assessment which is made available to students and care-givers.

Focus questions:
  • How would you describe your summative assessment?
Samples of practice

(a) Backdrop:
In this file of the fieldtrip booklet used by a year 9 class there are seven examples of activities and four examples of fieldwork tasks relating to the four different locations that the students visited during their coastal field experience. The sample also includes the summative assessment sheet for the day which includes a concluding VELS (Victorian Essential Learning Standards) report. Would this assessment sheet demonstrate that the students understand and/or are practiced in the relevant concepts and skills that apply to the form and processes that were operating in the areas of the coast that they visited? Why?
