At Joane Cardinal-Schubert High School, students, parents, and teachers will have many conversations about assessment.  These conversations will be important to broaden our understanding of assessment as essential factors for learning, growth and future goals, not just marks.  Assessment happens on a daily basis - during class time, throughout the year, and during report card times.  Our assessment will focus on outcomes and skills put forward by Alberta Education .

Outcomes - Statements from the programs of study that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do in a subject.

Students can expect to complete a variety of tasks (tests, assignments, presentations, self-assessments, etc.) to show what they know.  Teachers will assess work through conversations/observations/rubrics.  Some tasks will be a part of ongoing formative feedback to determine next step of student learning.  Some tasks will be summative and compare student achievement against what is required.  On report cards, students will see both percentages (as required by Alberta Education) and comments.  Students and parents should visit teachers' learning management systems regularly for ongoing assessment information.

Report Card Dates

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.​
