Assessment and reporting

The HPGE Policy and learning principles of Growth Mindset, Complexity and Challenge, Reflection and Feedback underpin an integrated approach to assessment ‘of, as, and for’ learning at Conservatorium High School. Students are encouraged to strive to reach their personal best in a learning context of high expectations and high support.

At Conservatorium High School, our assessment and data are used in an ongoing manner to inform learning and teaching across all domains of potential: intellectual, creative, social-emotional and physical.

Our teachers use a variety of strategies to assess student learning.

Objective, valid and reliable measures, formative assessments, are used to assess high potential and gifted students and identify their specific learning needs. These are integrated in our teaching and learning programs.

An ongoing process of analysis and evaluation of data related to the growth and achievement of high potential and gifted students ensure we are able to maintain effective differentiated programs and provisions.

Teachers observe students' work in class and look closely at tasks throughout the year. They also formally assess a student's achievement based on the outcomes described in the syllabus of the subject.

As a parent or carer, you’ll receive a written report twice a year. It gives you a clear picture of your child’s achievements – what they know and can do.

In Years 7 to 10, we use the common grade scale in reporting. In Year 11, we use the Preliminary grade scale.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses are assessed on achievement of competencies.


We provide detailed information to students about what we expect from them throughout the year and how their work will be assessed. Students have a number of formal assessments throughout their schooling.
