At the end of the school year (yes it’s almost here!) Semester Reports for our Prep to Year 11 students will become available online in our Portal. These reports summarise students’ progress for the semester, and most importantly give feedback on what they have done well and how they can further improve. The content of these reports is a critical element in the academic and overall development of every student as well as our parents’ understanding of it.
As has been the case this year students can access their own reports via the portal and will be guided to review and reflect on key goals at the start of next year. This is to facilitate the development of reflective, independent learners who are learning the tools of cyclical review and goal setting that will see them achieve their best and prepare them for a future of lifelong learning and continuous improvement.
As has been our practice for several years we will not be producing and posting home hard copy reports. Instead, the reports can be viewed and printed as PDF files to be viewed by families online via our Portal. You can also access all of a student’s reports from their time at Tintern Grammar, archived online for your easy reference.
These reports will be available to families on Tuesday 19 December at 11am and an email will be sent that day to families as a prompt. Instructions on how families can access these will be emailed on Monday 11 December.
To view these reports, please log in to MyTintern and go to the ‘Parent Services’ tab, then select the ‘Absences, Finance and Reports’ section and log in to the Synergetic System. A summary view can be can be found under the ‘Results’ tab and the full PDF version of the reports can be found in the Documents tab. Please be aware that the report screen will take about 20 secs to load once you log in.
Copies of the current and past reports in PDF format can be found under the ‘Documents’ tab. If you have any issues with logging in to the portal or locating your reports please call the IT helpdesk on 9845 7883 or email ITservices@tintern.vic.edu.au
We hope you find this process straightforward and the reports an informative summation of your child’s achievement and progress this semester as well as useful material to help guide future learning.
Year 8 Progressive Reporting Trial
This year we have trialled progressive reporting for our Year 8 families whereby grades for individual assessment tasks have appeared on the portal at regular intervals to give parents a progressive view of their child’s progress. As the trial draws to a close, I am keen to receive feedback on this process. If Year 8 families could spend five minutes to complete a survey found at this link I would be very grateful.
