School Mission Statement underpins our beliefs about outcome-based education. Ø All students can learn and succeed Ø Importance of meeting the needs of students to support them in becoming successful
lifelong learners; Ø The value of nurturing an environment, which supports each individual along his or her learning journey.
At St Eugene we believe that learning outcomes have a dual role: to inform planning and to be a framework for assessment. Teachers use assessment information to monitor student progress and to make professional judgements in order to: - Ø Inform students, parents, carers and schools about demonstrations about student outcomes. Ø Make decisions about students’ needs, the learning and teaching processes and resource requirements. Ø Set learning goals with students, parents and carers. Ø Guide the planning of school and class curriculum programs. (QSCC) At St Eugene we recognise that effective assessment: -Ø Focuses on students’ demonstration of learning outcomes; Ø Is comprehensive; Ø Develops students’ capacities to monitor their own progress; Ø Reflects current knowledge of child and adolescence development; Ø Is an integral part of the learning process; Ø Is valid and reliable; Ø Reflects social justice principles.
