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

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. ​​​
