Report Cards and Reporting Periods - Grades K-3

A formal written report card for students in Grades K-3 will be issued twice a year, December and June.  See our Calendar page for dates.  

Assessment is directly related to expectations identified for students at each grade level in the Program of Studies (mandated by the Government of Alberta) and to individual student expectations and growth. We assess students through observations, anecdotal records, portfolios, inquiry projects, daily work and diagnostic tests. The curriculum newsletter informs parents of grade specific instructional activities to enable parents to support their child’s learning.

​Assessment and Reporting at the CBE

The report card is one component in communicating student learning. In addition to the report card, schools communicate with parents/guardians about student progress on an ongoing basis in a variety of ways. Some other ways to learn how your child is doing are informal conversations with your child and your child’s teachers, celebrations of learning, conferences, and online tools such as D2L, HomeLogic and Iris. (See our Technology Tools page for more information.)

Grading and Reporting at the CBE

We know it is important for parents/guardians to understand how their children are doing in school. Research shows that students are more successful with active parent/guardian involvement.​

The Alberta Programs of Study are changing, and like many other school divisions in the province, the CBE is redesigning assessment and reporting practices to reflect these changes. We are developing resources to help teachers, students and parents/guardians see and understand student progress and achievement. This process of redesign will continue to evolve over a number of years as we work with our schools and parents/guardians to develop a rich and varied approach to assessment across all grades and a common report card for K-9.

Assessment is not just about report cards. They are one of the ways schools communicate with parents/guardians about their child’s progress and achievement at certain times of the year. Assessment happens every day, in every classroom, throughout the school year. Assessing a student’s progress is one of the most important ways we support the continued learning of our students.

We invite you to learn more about assessment as we work together to develop assessment and reporting practices that support the continued success of our students.​​​​​ How is My Child Doing in School?​ outlines some of the ways you can learn more about your child's learning and achievement.​

Many CBE schools participated in the national Student Vote last week. Students learned about the electoral system and got to experience democracy first-hand. Student results will announced on Oct 22. Way to go! #WeAreCBE https://t.co/0EmY24WWaC
