7-10 Assessment

At Rosehill, teachers report regularly to parents and students on student progress and achievement. Interim reports providing an indication of academic progress and student work habits are prepared each term and full written reports are provided at the end of each semester. In addition, parents and students can view results for specific learning tasks in each of their subjects via their Compass portal.

At Years 7-10, assessment of student learning achievement is based on the Victorian Curriculum F-10 Standards. Learning outcomes are organised into levels, which correspond to year levels of schooling. A student who is working ‘at expected level’ should attain the following VICVELS levels as they progress from Year 7 to Year 10:

VICVELS Level 7 – End of Year 7
VICVELS Level 8 – End of Year 8
VICVELS Level 9 – End of Year 9
VICVELS Level 10 – End of Year 10

Additionally, students are assessed on school assessed coursework (SACs) completed in each subject, using the grade scale A+ – N.  School assessed coursework includes end-of-semester exams at Year 9 (for CORE subjects only) and Year 10 (all subjects).

Grading scale used at Years 7-10:

  • A+ 90% – 100%
  • A 80% – 89%
  • B+  75% – 79%
  • B 70% – 74%
  • C+  65% – 69%
  • C 60% – 64%
  • D+ 55% – 59%
  • D 50% – 54%
  • N Below 50%
  • DNP– Not Assessed due to reasons identified by the College

Extensions for submission of work at Years 7-10

As is the case in VCE, a student requiring an extension for a piece of work must observe a formal process.

Students who realise before the due date that they will not be able to complete a work requirement need to:

1. Inform the subject teacher
2. Request an extension from the teacher

No more than two extensions will be permitted per unit and the extension may not be requested on the day the work is due.

An extension will normally be for a 2-3 day period, however this may be varied in exceptional circumstances.

Special arrangements are available for students who have been unable to complete a SAC due to prolonged illness or exceptional circumstances known to the College.

Rosehill Secondary College is accredited under the Department of Education and Trainings CRICOS registration (CRICOS provider name and code: Department of Education and Training, 00861K).
