Effective communication practices:

  • assist teachers to carry out the school’s assessment policy and procedures
  • provide students and their families with quality assessment information.

In reviewing communication practices, the key question for schools is: 'How effectively are assessment policies, procedures, and outcomes communicated to staff, students, and families?'

Support materials

These materials can assist schools in reviewing, improving, and monitoring the effectiveness of their communication practices. They offer some of the possible approaches used by schools.
