Examples and templates of written reports for students in years 1–8

For students in years 1 to 8, written reports provide a formal evaluation of progress and achievement twice per year. National Administration Guidelines stress the need to report on the basis of good quality assessment information, that draws on a range of evidence to evaluate the progress and achievement of students and build a comprehensive picture of student learning across the curriculum. Overall reporting practices should be designed in the light of each school’s needs, interests, and circumstances. Whatever way a school’s reporting processes are designed, they should provide information about the whole curriculum as part of an ongoing information sharing process. Written reports are only one aspect of a school's reporting cycle.

This page provides links to examples and templates for different elements of written reports.
