Testing and assessment

ASSESSMENT POLICY
The school has a comprehensive assessment policy. A copy of the policy can be located on the school website at http://wvhigh.eq.edu.au
 
Please find listed below the key points relating to submitting / sitting assessments that will be applied across all year levels.
 
Draft assignment/assessment not submitted by the due date
The teacher will phone home to advise of the non-submission and of the final due date (if no answer an email or text will be sent). Students must submit a draft at the next lesson and the final copy by the final due date.
Final assignment/assessment not submitted by the due date
If students are away they have until 3pm that day to hand the item in at the Engagement Centre or email it to the teacher.
If Junior students (Year 7, 8 or 9) are away on the final due date due to illness a medical certificate or written explanation from home must be provided for approval by the Principal on the next day a student attends. If the absence on the due date is for any other reason a written explanation from home is to be provided to the Principal for approval on the next day you attend. Students can only submit the final copy once authorisation has been given.
 
If Senior students (Year 10, 11 or 12) are away on the final due date due to illness a medical certificate must be provided on the next day a student attends. If the absence on the due date is for any other reason a written explanation from home is to be provided to the Principal for approval on the next day you attend. Students can only submit the final copy once authorisation has been given.
 
If no explanation or medical certificate is provided student’s draft and other work will be marked and a grade awarded. A final copy will not be accepted. If no draft was submitted you will complete the task in the next lesson attended and whatever work is submitted will be marked and a grade awarded or students may not receive credit for that item.
 
Student absent from an exam (in class or block exam)
The teacher will phone home to advise of the exam missed on the day of the exam (if no answer a text will be sent).
 
Junior students (Year 7, 8 or 9) must provide a medical certificate or a written explanation for student illness to the Principal for approval on the next day a student attends. For all other absences a written explanation from home must be provided for approval by the Principal in order for students to sit the exam the next day they attend school.
 
Senior students (Year 10, 11 or 12) must provide a medical certificate for student illness to the Principal for approval on the next day a student attends. For all other absences a written explanation from home must be provided for approval by the Principal in order for students to sit the exam the next day students attend school.
 
If no medical certificate or acceptable explanation is provided students will not receive credit for the exam (this may mean no semester credit awarded for senior students).
 
Extension requests
Students must apply for an extension to a due date on the official school form and submit this to the Head of Department Engagement at least 3 days prior to the due date.
 
Students will submit written assessment electronically via ‘Safe assign’.
 
Please note: students are not permitted to sit exams early
