Communicating Student Learning

Communicating Student Learning is an integral aspect of our students' learning. Teachers provide regular feedback to students, and will communicate at regular intervals with families about their children's progress.

COMMUNICATING STUDENT LEARNING FRAMEWORK

Assessment & Evaluation

As learning is an individual journey, assessment and evaluation is cumulative.  The emphasis is on supporting students to achieve competency.

The purpose of assessment is to facilitate learning and move it forward in an equitable and inclusive way.  It helps students answer three questions about their learning:

            Where am I now?                   Where am I going?                          How do I get there?

For communicating student learning purposes, the assessment & evaluation scheme is as follows for grades 8 and 9: 

BEGINNING
(EMERGING)
DEVELOPINGAPPLYING
(PROFICIENT)
EXTENDING
The student demonstrates an
initial understanding of the
concepts and competencies
relevant to the expected
learning.
The student demonstrates
 a partial understanding
 of the concepts and competencies relevant
to the expected learning.


The student demonstrates a complete understanding of the concepts and competencies relevant to the expected learning.


The student demonstrates a sophisticated understanding of the concepts and competencies relevant to the expected learning.


IN PROGRESS OR INCOMPLETE: The student, for a variety of reasons, has insufficient evidence to determine a level of understanding of the concepts and competencies to the expected learning.

The assessment & evaluation scheme is as follows for grades 10 through 12: 

BEGINNING
(EMERGING)

WORK HABITS FRAMEWORK

Work habits are an assessment of a student's performance as it relates to the work within and for the class.  While work habits can strongly correlate to a student's success in demonstrating their learning, the assessment of Work Habits is an independent from Assessment of Learning or vice versa.
