Assessment and Evaluation Guidelines

Assessment and evaluation are based on the provincial expectations and levels of achievement outlined in the provincial curriculum document for each subject in secondary school. A wide range of assessment and evaluation opportunities allows students to demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways. This information provides the basis for reporting student grades on the Provincial Report Card. Achievement (reflected in a final mark) will be calculated using the following categories:

Knowledge/Understanding: 30%

Thinking: 20%

Application: 25%

Communication: 25%

Assessment and Evaluation Guidelines

The student’s grade for the term marks will be based on the most consistent achievement with emphasis on the most recent within each category. Students will also receive descriptive feedback as part of the learning process which may not be assigned a mark. Final Mark = 70% Term + 30% Final Evaluation
