Student 3 demonstrates the biggest need for support. This is a grade 2 student who displays
many learning difficulties and has not completed several Foundation achievement standards
(even though they repeated a year of prep). However, the student has exhibited (to an
extent) an understanding of the main idea of the story they went to space and a space
zoo and provided 2 very simple details from the text. What the sample does not show
however, is that this student required a lot of assistance during the task where prompts and
suggestions were given to them.
Student 5s work sample displays one of the most advanced students in the class. This is a
grade 1 student that has neat hand writing and shows the ability to think well beyond the
literal text. This student thoroughly enjoys their reading and has refined comprehension
skills for a student of their age. This student would benefit from a more challenging task
where the story would require them to make text-to-self connections and inferences
beyond the text.
Student 18 displays an At level result for their assessment sample, as they believe a certain
event in the story is part of the main idea (rather than a supporting detail for the main idea)
i.e. the teacher is floating because theyre in space the story is not based around this
teacher floating away. Though, the student is able to identify what happens in the story
and provides links from the story to support their understanding. It is believed that by the
end of the year they will be able to determine what is important and what is not.
It is understood that the fundamental drive for reporting is to enhance student learning, and
the greatest indicator of the reporting effectiveness is the quality of student learning
(Kivunja 2015). There is growing appreciation that education is more effective when there is
an active partnership between families and schools (Kivunja 2015). Therefore, the purpose
of this summative assessment and its feedback was to guide parents (and future teachers)
in developing the students learning needs. It is believed that the feedback given to students
provided accurate information of their attainment, progress and learning needs providing
evidence for setting new targets and learning focuses. The assessment and its feedback
allowed me to evaluate the effectiveness of my teaching and help the children see the
progress they are making in regards to the learning outcomes of the Victorian Curriculum.
Copies of the feedback given to the 3 students in regards to their assessment work (shown
above) can be seen below.
