The Remote Learning Guidelines for Assessment have been developed to support high quality assessment and feedback in our school. The Guidelines outline our commitment to enabling each student to achieve her best in the remote learning space and to create a spirit of collaboration between teachers, students and parents.
Teachers will maintain, insofar as possible, the modes of assessment and feedback that are familiar to students and that are consistent with the methodologies and approaches that they would normally adopt at this stage of the year.
The Remote Learning Guidelines have been developed to support our school community to engage in high quality, effective and safe remote learning. The Guidelines outline our expectations of all members of our school community to enable best effort to minimise the impact of school closure on teaching and learning.
This updated document sets out the adjusted assessment arrangements for post-primary students taking certificate examinations in the 2020/21 school year. These arrangements are designed to take account of the disrupted learning experienced by students during the 2019/20 school year.
I hope that you and your families are keeping safe and well at this difficult time. As you know, from yesterday Monday 11 January, schools will be closed to students and all students at primary and post-primary level will now move to a programme of remote learning.
