DEC Policy Statement:
All students at Shenton College Deaf Education Centre will be assessed with appropriate assessment tools to identify the individual needs of each student. This will enable the student to maximise their capacity to achieve identified outcomes. As well as assessment tools, the Outcomes and Assessment Framework will be used as a guide to develop programs and report on the individual student’s achievement. The level of the student and not their age or year level will determine the educational program that is mapped out through the Individual Education Plan. The Deaf Education Centre ensures that the CAR policy of the Department of Education and Training is adhered to.
Each student has an Individual Education Plan (IEP)
The Deaf Education Centre Individual Education Plan must include the following:
The IEP will draw on:
Outcomes and Standards Framework
Schedule A of the CAR policy
The Deaf Education Centre Priorities and Assessment Schedule
Input from parents, students, other professionals
Shenton College school reports

The aim of the DEC Assessment Policy is to meet the Department of Education and Training Overall Objective:
