Testing and assessment

The assessment calendars for all grades are now available.

The assessment items are coloured coded:

  • Green is the date that the assessment item is given to the students.
  • Purple is the date that a draft is due to the teacher.
  • Blue is the date the completed assessment item is due to the teacher.
  • Pink indicates the day students will sit an exam.

The assessment types we use are:

  • EW Extended Written – this refers to any long written piece of work.  The length of the work will vary depending on the student’s age and is different in each subject, however usually EW pieces refer to a substantial task.  Different genres will occur in different subjects and may include such things as essays, reports, EEI (Extended Experimental Investigation), or scripts.
  • SR Short Response – this refers to any task looking for shorter type answers.  These might be paragraph length, or even include such things as true/false or multiple choice questions.
  • PR Product – is any item that the student needs to produce – it could include a poster, a PowerPoint, a meal, an item made in a workshop or even an artefact created for history.
  • PF Performance – is anything that students have to perform – for example a play in drama, a speech or multimodal presentation, demonstration of a sport.


Any changes to the calendar with be communicated to parents via email from the relevant Head of Department.

If students require an extension for an assessment item, the required procedures still apply.  See page 17 of the Kilcoy State High School student diary.

Please contact the school if you have any questions regarding assessment.
