Assessment

 

 

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 name of the student
  • The student’s year level
  • The level of support/resources (EA, TOD, other)
  • The date the IEP was established
  • A review date and an end date
  • Signatures of the parent, student and staff
  • Assessments being used
  • The teacher responsible for the student
  • The outcomes, strategies and targets
  • The IEP will detail achievement and a copy will be given to parents

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
