School assessment

School Assessment

Units 1 and 2:

  • The school will set a range of Assessment Tasks for students to complete in each of the units they are enrolled in.

  • These will be reported on in the official Marian College School Reports but are not passed on to VCAA.



  • Students are expected to attend 100% of classes in every subject.

  • The minimum attendance for satisfactory completion of a unit is 90%.

  • Occasional absences due to:

    • School Related Activities

    • Illness

    • Family reasons



Explanations for Absence:

  • School Related Activities – students must inform teachers before the event.

  • Illness - The medical certificate must be given to the Mentor teacher as soon as you return to school.

  • Family reasons – In extenuating circumstances the Year Level Leader should be contacted as soon as possible to discuss the circumstances. External evidence required.




  • The school does not support students missing classes to go on holidays.

  • Any absence related to holidays will affect the student’s attendance requirements and their ability to successfully complete units of work.

  • Missing four lessons will take the student’s attendance below the 90% required for Satisfactory Completion.
