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

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.​​​​​
