Assessment and reporting

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

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.

The key to success is planning and we at Homebush Boys are committed to helping you plan to do the best you can.  

Assessment planning grid

Use the planning grid below to plan your year.

It is a good idea to mark on it exams and assignments.  You may also like to add your own assessment goals as well such as days you aim to start preparing for certain assessments etc.

Download the assessment planning grid as PDF or Word.

Assessment booklets

These provide important details of assessments, when they are due and how much they are worth. 

We encourage both students and parents/ carers to read them and be aware of the important information contained within.

If you have any queries, your teachers or Year Advisers will be more than happy to help in any way they can.
