Year 7 2019 Diagnostic Testing

Date:
Sat 18 August 2018

Time:
08:30 am to 12:30 pm

Location:
Quadrangle

Students are asked to assemble in the Quadrangle, located adjacent to Main Reception.

Time: 8.30am – 12.30pm

Please collect your son in the Quadrangle at 12.30pm:

• Requirements:
• Blue/black pens
• Water bottle
• Snack for morning tea
• Tennis ball for recess activities
• Novel to read (if finished exam early)

The purpose of the assessment is to provide the College with information about your son’s skills in literacy and numeracy.  It assists us in identifying possible areas of need for extension or assistance.  It also provides an effective summary of how our students compare to a broader state-wide population.  This helps the College provide a curriculum suitable for our students.

No one is assessed as passing or failing the tests; nor is the assessment seen as a conclusive statement of a student’s ability.  It is one of the measures we use, along with information from our feeder primary schools and our own observations over time, that allow us to monitor each student’s development.

Marcellin College looks forward to working with you in the education of your son over the coming years.

If you have any queries please contact Michele Mellas  - College Registrar on 9815 1589.
