CTJ – 2019 Scripture

This year the focus for our Consistency of Teacher Judgement discussions will be the Achievement Standards regarding to the teaching and learning of Scripture

Consistency of Teacher Judgement process for 2019

From our consultations with staff and APREs in 2017 the following changes have been made to how CTJ – Religion will be organized in 2019.

Schools are encouraged to engage in all CTJ practices. These include:

  • familiarity with and shared understanding of Religion curriculum
  • common interpretation of the curriculum intent and shared understanding of how learner achievement is demonstrated
  • collaborative planning of and reflection on teaching, learning and assessing techniques
  • ongoing formal and informal dialogue (within and between schools) about the teaching and learning cycle
  • moderation of teacher judgments within and between school/s.


Teachers in P-Yr.6 will be required to attend two regional meetings – one in Term one 2019 and the other in Term three 2019.

 The CTJ pre -planning sessions early in 2019, will engage P-yr 10  teachers in the  first three CTJ practices.

Yr 7 – yr 10 teachers will participate in pre-planning sessions at their normal scheduled Religion department meetings early in the year.

Ongoing formal and informal dialogue will be the responsibility of APREs/HODs and teachers during the school year.


Teachers will discuss their own samples at the interschool CTJ – Religion meetings.

The CTJ process will develop:

  • Teachers  understanding of what the student needed to know/do to demonstrate the relevant  achievement standard as well as appropriate and valid assessment tasks.



The CTJ – Religion focus for 2019 will be the teaching and assessing of Scripture

CTJ Religion Pre-Planning Staff meetings for P-6 Teachers will be facilitated in Term 1 (see table below).
CTJ Religion Interschool discussions of student responses will occur in  Term 3.
As Scripture is not organised in a specific individual content strand but is embedded in all of the four content strands of Beliefs Sacraments, Morality and Prayer, it is understood that the samples of students work for CTJ – Religion  can be obtained from any of the four Content strands and corresponding units of work.
This will therefore not require schools to ‘fit’ the CTJ focus into their yearly overview. Work samples can be taken from any unit of work where Scripture is being taught and assessed.
