At the Doctor’s – Level 4 Sample Unit

Assessment

The Victorian Essential Learning Standards support a combination of assessment practices:

Assessment guide

When assessing student achievement, assessment criteria can be developed from relevant standards and associated tasks or activities. The table below shows the assessment criteria related to the assessment task/s and relevant standards and the expected evidence to be used as the basis for assessment.

The table can also be used to assist teachers to make judgments about whether students are working at the standard (achieved the standard), progressing towards the standard (have not met expectations of the standard) or progressing beyond the standard (have exceeded expectations of the standard) for specific assessment criteria. It is provided as a guide only and may be adapted or modified to suit particular classrooms and/or students reporting.

See the Teaching, learning and assessment advice for advice on developing rubrics.
