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.

To provide parents and students with current information about assessment dates for each Stage of schooling at Tweed River High School, please go to

We also have 2023 Assessment Guides to download here:

Details may change over time as the progress of teaching programs and resource availability can impact on assessment deadline.

Students are also issued with a hardcopy of expected assessment schedules at the commencement of each course.

NB: Students will receive a minimum of 2 weeks notice of any change to an assessment event.

Why not print off this term and display it on your fridge or where you study.

Students are reminded that they must be in attendance the day of and the day prior to a due date and ensure the task is submitted by due dates or lodge an Illness, misadventure, special circumstances application with supporting documentation to avoid a zero mark.
