Mathematics Grades

Grade in Mathematics, Years 7 to 9

This semester the grade stated at the top of the report is the grade awarded across the entire year group, similar to a NAPLAN result. The information regarding the grading process was published on the College’s website in March 2015.

The outcomes, however, are awarded at the level at which the student has studied Mathematics. The level is decided by the pace at which the content of the course has been delivered. At the end of the report outcomes you will find a statement which reads: “The grade awarded at this level is indicated by . .”. This sentence indicates the grade awarded at the level studied. For example a tick in the middle of the continuum indicates that the student has earned a C grade at this level. This indicator may differ from the grade awarded across the year group.

Grade in Mathematics, Years 10 and 10A

In Year 10, Level 1(10A) the grade is awarded within that level only.

In Year 10, Levels 2 and 3 this semester, the grade stated at the top of the report is the grade awarded across both these levels, similar to a NAPLAN result. The information regarding the grading process was published on the College’s website in March 2015. At the end of the report outcomes you will find a statement which reads: “The grade awarded at this level is indicated by . .”.  This sentence indicates the grade awarded at the level studied. For example a tick in the middle of the continuum indicates that the student has earned a C grade at this level. This indicator may differ from the grade awarded across Levels 2 and 3 in the year group.

For students enrolling in Mathematics courses in Year 11, 2017 at St Clare’s, the enrolment advice given in the Faculty Handbook refers directly to the grade awarded in either Yr 10A or the grade awarded across Levels 2 and 3 in Year 10 and not to the grade awarded at the level of study. Year 11 students for 2017 are advised to check that they are enrolled in the appropriate Mathematics course as per the prerequisites stated in the enrolment advice in the Faculty Handbook, available on the College’s website. This is of particular importance in 2017 for Year 11, as the Australian Curriculum Senior Mathematics courses were implemented in 2016.
