|The purpose of the National Standards spreadsheet are to show parents and students what needs to be achieved to attain|
the standard a student is aiming for. In addition it is used for students to set goals and next steps around their learning.
How teachers decide which standard a child has attained?
|The standards have been rewritten (where possible) to make them easier to understand. It is expected that if a student has|
achieved one of the criteria then they will be able to explain it to someone else. So if you are not sure what something
means then just ask your child.
How you can support your child at home
|Not achieved yet|
Teachers and students are jointly responsible for maintaining the spreadsheet
|Achieved in 2015|
|Identity next steps||Support students to identify next steps||Note|
|Attend workshops and practise the skill or knowledge||Teach student the skill or knowledge and allow opportunities to practise||1. Not all of the criteria in the National Standards have equal weighting. Some are just identifying and recall while others require more higher order thinking|
|Collect evidence that they can transfer the skill or knowledge to different contexts||Communicate what evidence is needed to achieve a criteria||2. If your child is aiming for the Year 7 or 9 standard, they only need to complete half of the criteria. Year 6, 8 or 10 need to complete the whole thing|
|Evaluate evidence to ensure validity|
Students will typically achieve a criteria through two main avenues
1. Answering multiple questions correctly on a standardised test
2. Learning through multiple lessons and being able to use the skill/strategy in different contexts
