Thornlie Primary School
ASSESSMENT AND REPORTING
Thornlie Intensive English Centre teachers use The English as an Additional Language/Dialect (EAL/D) Progress Map to monitor, assess and report on students within the IEC. The EAL/D Progress Map is a Western Australian planning, monitoring and assessment tool for all students requiring support in developing Standard Australian English (SAE) who come from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds whether arriving from overseas or born in Australia. The EAL/D progress Map is aligned to the Western Australian Curriculum and applies to all learning areas.
Students at Thornlie IEC are reported on each semester (at the end of Term 2 and Term 4) as per the requirements of the Department of Education’s ‘Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Policy (CAR) K –10: Policy and Guidelines’. Parent interviews are held with the student’s classroom teacher to discuss the student’s final report when they are due to transition from the IEC into mainstream schooling. Parents may request an interview with their child’s classroom teacher at any time however an appointment must be made. When necessary, an interpreter will be provided.
