Newly revised: Indicative progress descriptions
The Victorian Curriculum F–10 has been designed as a continuum of learning, with achievement standards provided at the end of a level or more typically, at the end of a band of levels. As students progress along the curriculum, indicative progress descriptions can assist teachers to describe what student progress looks like
between achievement standards. Such a description of a student's progression of learning may be useful to a teacher when they need to assess and report on students' learning progress when they are only partially through teaching the level and hence the student is still working towards the level Achievement Standard.
To assist teachers to develop their own indicative progress descriptions, the VCAA has provided
an indicative progress template that includes
an annotated example, a curriculum-specific example of indicative progress and a template prepopulated with the curriculum-specific

Please note: The indicative progress templates and examples are provided as advice. They are just one of a number of tools teachers can use to help form an on-balance judgment about their students' learning progress against the Victorian Curriculum F–10 achievement standards.
