After two years of research and planning, we are delighted to announce that Waverley College will be offering parents and carers real-time access to assessment task results and formative task feedback via the College Learning Management System – CANVAS – in the coming weeks.
This will be in lieu of Years 7 – 12 Term 1 and Term 3 progress reports. Please note that we will still be issuing full reports via the TASS parent portal at the end of Semester 1 and Semester 2.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the volunteer parents and carers from the Parents’ Association, who have dedicated their time in a trial of this new system to provide valuable feedback.
We would also like to thank the large number of parents and carers who attended the Parents’ Association meeting this term to hear about this initiative.
One of the major benefits of this new system, is that parents and carers will be able to access information regarding the whole assessment process from notification to results, and feedback as it happens, rather than waiting for a static report at the end of each term.
To facilitate a smooth launch, we will be staggering the release across year groups in the following stages:
- Students in Years 10-12, Term 1 Week 11
- Students in Years 7-9, Term 2 Week 1
- Students in Years 5-6, Term 2 Week 3
As access for parents and carers according to this timeline becomes available, we will be in touch with instructions and a training video to assist with the setup and navigation of the system.
