Report Cards

Check our calendar page for exact dates when report cards are issued.

Student Assessment

Students will be given course outlines which describe outcomes to be learned and how marks will be given for each course. The course outline will clearly state the general outcomes of the course, assessment methods to be used, and the assessment weighting. These outlines should be shared with parents.

Students will have ongoing assessment in their courses.  Although teachers will use both, Formative (ongoing, showing progress and next steps) and Summative (formalized testing and grading) assessment, the emphasis is on growth and development through regular and ongoing Formative Assessments.

At various points throughout the semesters there will be time allotted to reflect, review, discuss and report on student learning.  This may take many forms from projects, assignments to testing of skills, theory and attitudes.  Students will receive regular reporting as a class/course progress report around mid-semester and a more formal report card at end of each semester.

Parents and guardians are also welcome to check online at any time for achievement and attendance updates.

Student Course Challenge Process

  • submit an application to Guidance and principal
  • providing a portfolio of work to Guidance and the course instructor
  • having an interview with Guidance, the principal and course instructor
  • successfully demonstrate the ability to meet the outcomes of the course

Physical education tote boxes are to be used only during P.E. classes and for extracurricular activities as the locker rooms will be locked at other times.

​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.)

Visit the CBE website for more information and for the Parent’s Guide, Assessment and Reporting.​​​​​​​

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.​​​​​
