Numeracy and Literacy Exams

**Please note the exam schedule that was originally published in last weeks' bulletin has been revised. See below for more information.

The Graduation Literacy and Numeracy Assessments are a graduation requirement for all students in BC. The assessment is NOT a test but assesses students' ability to apply their literacy and numeracy skills in realistic contexts. Please see the Ministry of Education's website for further information: https://curriculum.gov.bc.ca/sites/curriculum.gov.bc.ca/files/pdf/GLA_10_Specifications.pdf

Grade 10 students are required to have completed both the literacy and numeracy assessments before graduation. Grade 11 and 12 students are required to have written the numeracy assessment but not the literacy assessment.

Students currently registered in a Math 10 or English 10 class at Lord Byng, will write the assessments during their Double Block in the week of January 20th. Numeracy Assessment: Students in grade 10 who have accelerated in math (i.e. currently registered in math 11 or 12) will write the assessment in the morning of Thursday, January 23. Students in grade 11 and 12 who have not yet written the assessment, will write in the afternoon of Thursday, January 23rd. We are also running two additional sessions on the Professional Development Day to accommodate any grade 11 and 12 students who have not yet written the assessment, and grade 10 students who have accelerated in math, who are unable to write the exam on Thursday, January 23rd. However, to write the assessment on Monday, January 20, students must sign up in the office as seats are limited. Please check the schedule and lists outside the office.
