The Riverstone High School Years 7-10 Assessment HUB is an online Assessment Schedule database that provides all students with the necessary information to achieve success in any course studied at RHS in Years 7-10. The homepage provides the general detail and information about assessment and the Record of School Achievement.
Each year group has it's own tab. The drop down menus will direct users to the individual subjects offered in each year and will provide:
The Assessment Schedule (The exact timing and weighting of the assessments for the year)
A Scope & Sequence (The units and modules of study for each course)
An Assessment Calendar (The nominated weeks of assessment for each course)
Should students or parents/caregivers have any specific questions related to assessments within a course, they are encouraged to contact the Head Teacher of the faculty on 02 9627 1484.
Further information about assessment can be found at Board of studies.
