Northside Christian College provides all Secondary School parents and guardians with online access to their child’s assessment feedback and results via the Continuous Online Reporting Program (CORP). CORP increases awareness of individual learning needs and provides ongoing feedback to students, parents and guardians.
Students at Northside Christian College receive feedback through the discussion of strengths and areas that need improvement. Continuous online reporting makes feedback available to parents in a secure online environment. Parents and guardians can view results for assessments without waiting until the end of the semester. The online assessment information is not designed to replace semester reports, but rather to complement them by providing continuous feedback in a more timely fashion.
The concept of Continuous Online Reporting is supported by a wealth of research in the field of assessment and reporting and student learning. The College has been influenced by the work of Professor John Hattie and his meta-analyses related to learning and achievement. In his ground-breaking study, “Visible Learning”, he ranked 138 influences that related to learning outcomes. Hattie found that ‘informative feedback’ had one of the greatest effects on student learning.
Northside Christian College is aware that there are a broad range of benefits for implementing a continuous online reporting program. Most significant is the ability to provide timely, informative feedback to students. Further benefits include the following:
Northside Christian College is using an online environment called Schoology to facilitate teaching and learning at Northside. Students are able to receive course materials and assignments, have discussions, and submit work using this platform. Student results and feedback are also reported on Schoology.
Parents of Secondary students can also create accounts so that they can get access to some aspects of their child’s courses. Most importantly, parents will be able to see the due dates of upcoming assignments and receive notification if assessment tasks have not been submitted.
