Communicating Student Learning
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 CSL with you! We hope you received the bookmark and letter with the report card on January 31, 2020 that described some of our new processes.
Questions and feedback are always welcome.
