Senior College at Marist

Senior College students are able to complete their Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) while achieving an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) for university entry or vocational education and training (VET) qualifications. Senior College students select their own program of study and the College encourages a selection of a mixed course of pre-tertiary, non pre-tertiary and VET subjects to suit future training and education pathways.

Senior College students can have their own notebook, as part of the 1:1 computer program.


Curriculum

The Tasmanian Certificate of Education is overseen by the Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification (TASC). Information evenings and opportunities to discuss pathway plans and TCE subject choices are held throughout the year. Faculty and subject teachers are available at Subject Advice Night to discuss subject offerings.

We encourage parents and students to refer to the Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification (TASC) website for detailed information about specific subjects.

Students are able to undertake a range of VET subjects and achieve nationally recognised qualifications at Marist. Courses can be accessed through a range of providers including the Cradle Coast Trade Training Centre located on our campus.

 

Detailed information about our TCE and VET subjects can be found in the Senior College Subject Selection Guide. No media download found.

It is a requirement of TASC that the College implements procedures to ensure the authenticity and academic integrity of work submitted for assessment.

Assessment

Assessment modes and demands vary within subjects. Pre-tertiary (Level 3) courses usually include an external examination or require students to submit a portfolio of work. Students undertake a cycle of continuous assessment throughout the year in all subjects. Culminating summative tasks are completed to standards specified by the TASC. Teachers engage in moderation processes to support validation of internal results. Examinations are usually held twice a year for TASC Level 3 courses. 

Reporting

Reports are distributed three times throughout the year.  Parents and students are invited to meet with teachers at our Parent Teacher Feedback Meetings.

  • Term One Progress Report - distributed end of Term One
  • Parent Teacher Feedback Meetings - beginning of Term Two
  • Semester One Report - distributed end of Term Two
  • Parent Teacher Feedback Meetings - beginning of Term Three
  • Semester Two Report - distributed end of Term Four

Online Progressive Feedback - MEL

At Marist, we use an online learning platform referred to as MEL (Marist e-Learning). Teachers and students use MEL as a valuable learning and teaching tool. Teachers utilise MEL to provide Online Progressive Feedback to students, by uploading marks, results and suggestions for improvement continuously throughout the year, encouraging students to take on the feedback for improved outcomes.  At the same time, parents have access, via the MEL Parent Portal, to tasks, due dates, and the feedback provided to students by their teachers.

In addition to information about student progress, the information available to parents on the MEL Parent Portal includes: access to class pages; access to a live version of the school calendar; access to homework and assessments that are due; student timetables and general information regarding uniform, canteen, library, news and highlights about what is happening within the College.
