Concepts and skills charts

Teachers will be able to see clearly how students’ understanding of concepts or application of skills should develop across the levels. When reading across the levels, it is important to recognise that standards are introduced when developmentally appropriate so some concepts or skills will not appear at lower levels. They are also cumulative in nature, implying that the concepts and skills will be built on and reinforced even if not specifically identified in a subsequent level.
Teachers can use the charts individually or in professional learning teams to:

  • support their understanding of the standards at a particular level
  • see clearly how students’ understanding of each concept or application of each skill should develop across the levels
  • support planning of explicit teaching, learning and assessment activities
  • plan for individual students’ learning needs
  • audit content of individual and whole school programs against AusVELS
  • stimulate thinking about the application of the domains across the curriculum.

Progression points examples for AusVELS Health and Physical Education

Progression point examples are provided to assist teachers in the assessment and reporting of student achievement. In AusVELS,
the progression point examples are provided in 0.5 increments.  

For each reporting period, teachers will use a variety of assessments to inform their on-balance judgment about student progress against the standards provided in a domain.  

Teachers are advised that progression point examples are not mandated for curriculum planning and reporting purposes. They are examples only.

Progression point examples are designed to: Progression point examples are NOT designed to:
  • illustrate how a student might show evidence of progression
  • be used in conjunction with other tools such as annotated student work samples
  • be modified by schools so that the examples reflect the curriculum structure and timing of when knowledge and skills are taught and assessed
  • replace standards
  • be used as a definitive or mandated set of progression measures for student assessment
  • be the only resource used by teachers to assign progression points on student reports


To assist schools planning for implementing the AusVELS curriculum in 2013, progression point examples are available:
