Report Cards

Report cards are sent home twice per year for all students, in January and at the end of June. We ask that you discuss and analyze and celebrate your child's report card with them. See our Calendar page for exact dates.

Achievement & Assessment

Teachers strive to provide a well-rounded education that focuses on the intellectual, physical, social, emotional and behavioural needs of students. Assessment is a continuous process. Student learning is assessed through a variety of methods including observation, work samples, tests, anecdotal records, portfolios, conversations, and student learning plans. Students are also engaged in self-assessment and seek actionable feedback from peers. Information gleaned through these processes is used to plan for next steps in learning and to demonstrate growth and improvement over time.

Personalized Learning 

Colonel Walker School represents a diverse learning community. Our teachers recognize that all students learn differently and benefit from opportunities that are personalized specifically for their needs, strengths and areas of interest. All students at Colonel Walker School work with their teachers to establish, pursue, and assess a range of personal goals related to academics, health, character, and citizenship.

In some cases, teachers adapt curriculum as required in order to meet the needs of students who benefit from specialized support in their learning. Some of our students are on Individualized Program Plans (IPP's), which allow teachers to adapt the Alberta Program of Studies.

Some students receive support from the School Learning Team and Educational Assistants. The school also works very closely with CBE specialists, strategists, and psychologists and collaborates with AHS speech therapists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists.

Assessment 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 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. 

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 have developed some resources related to assessment and report cards, and to help you learn more about your child's learning. As more resources are developed, you will find them here.​

Some schools are moving to digital report cards. For help with accessing student assessment and reporting information, please refer to the information in the MyCBE/PowerSchool Support section of our website. 

Visit the CBE website for more information on Assessment & Reporting at the CBE. ​​​
