Standards Based Assessment Report Card-Gr.8&9

You are receiving this letter because your child is enrolled in a Grade 8 and/ or 9 class this semester that is implementing our new Standards Based Assessment report card. Our teachers will be using the Four-Point Provincial Proficiency Scale to communicate student progress on the Mid Term and Final Report Cards.As you are aware, the Ministry of Education has implemented a redesigned Provincial curriculum in schools. As curriculum has changed, so do the ways we assess, evaluate and report on student learning. Throughout the semester students will be given feedback on their learning using Standards Based Assessment. This assessment is focused on ongoing dialogue between the student and teacher using the Curricular Competencies of the course curriculum and a four-point Provincial proficiency scale. Please see the attached a link for your reference:

Mid Term Report Cards represent a ‘check in’ on students’ progress. We feel the changes on the report card reinforce that learning is a process for students. This new report card shows both areas of strength and growth for learning.  A letter grade will be given on the Final Report Card.

Below this letter you will find directions to access your child’s detailed report card on the Parent Portal.

We value your feedback. Please direct any comments or questions to your child’s teacher or directly to me.
