Student Learning Profiles (SLP)
What is the Student Learning Profile (SLP)?
The overall purpose of the SLP is to provide a “snapshot” of student learning at regular intervals during the semester. It will provide students, parents and teachers with a clear (and visual) indication of where the student is succeeding, as well as which areas require improvement.
Teachers will provide students with feedback on their performance, and students should make every effort to improve their rating for the next SLP.
- The SLP is a cumulative reporting system that monitors student learning.
- We complete SLPs every 3 to 4 weeks as the degree of success for a student can change quickly.
- Students will be rated on 3 Key Performance Areas – Work Completion, Demonstrated Understanding and Work Habits.
- Students will be rated on 3 levels – ‘Above’, ‘At’ and ‘Below’. One or more ‘Below’ ratings in a subject means that the student is at risk of failing that subject.
- Students will receive a PDF of their SLP via their Compass portal.
- Parents can view a copy of the SLP via the MSC Parent Portal, as well as receiving copies in the mail (see below for further details).
- The SLP will show the % attendance rate for each subject, plus attendance at approved school activities. A minimum of 90% attendance is expected.
- The SLP will also indicate if the student is at risk of not being successful in a subject or subject/s.
- The SLP should be used as the main discussion point at Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences during the year.
- The email address of each class teacher and the Sub School Leader will appear on the SLP – parents can use this to contact staff if they have concerns.
Parents are welcome to attend all Parent/Student/Conferences (PST), but Parents should attend the next PST and/or contact the class teacher or Pathways Teacher if the student:-
- Receives one or more “Below” rankings in a subject
- The performance of the student is declining (for example, ratings drop from “At” to “Below”), and/or
- Ratings remain at “Below” for consecutive SLPs
A matrix is included to show the ratings for each of the 3 Key Areas (For example, what “Below” in Work Completion means).
Once published, all SLPs can be viewed via the Parent Portal. Information about accessing the portal was mailed out to Parents in early February. The dates for when SLPs will be available through the Portal appear on the College Calendar.
|Criteria||Work Completion||Demonstrate Understanding||Work habits|
The student has not:
The student has not demostraed sufficient knowledge/understanding:
The Student has not established sound work habits in these areas:
The student has:
The student has demonstrated sufficient Knowledge/understanding:
The student regularly:
The student has:
The student has demonstrated high Knowledge/understanding:
The student consistently:
At Risk: At the time of the SLP, the student had not satisfied one or more the Learning Outcomes for the subject and is at risk of an Unsatisfactory Unit result. The student must arrange to meet with their subject teacher immediately to discuss strategies to get on track to achieve a successful result.
These ratings apply to the student’s progress at the current time. The rating is awarded based on the student’s performance in one or more of the dot point areas.
