Communicating Student Learning (CSL) is a new term to describe reporting and report cards for BC students. CSL addresses the need for ongoing communication of student learning, formative assessment, self assessment and the need for students to be deeply involved in their own learning journey.
Ultimately, transforming “reporting” to “communicating student learning” shifts the ownership from teachers to a shared ownership among students, parents and teachers. This links directly with the new, British Columbia Re-designed Curriculum and the focus on six Core Competencies related to: thinking, communication and personal & social awareness.
Please talk with your child's teacher about their method of reporting for the 2018-2019 school year--either the traditional 3 terms reporting or the ongoing, 2 terms, CSL approach.
