Report cards/progress reports will be distributed four times per year.

Grade eleven and all complementary courses are semestered therefore all report cards will include a percentage and comment; grade ten core academic courses are “yearlong”.

Since Grade 10 core academic courses are year-long, the first report card will include comments; all subsequent report cards will include a percentage and comment.

Report Cards

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

Assessment at our School

We will have many conversations about assessment at RTHS – with you, with your parents, with your teachers. These conversations will be important so that we broaden our understanding of assessment as essential for learning, growth, and future goals not just marks; assessment happens daily during class time and throughout the year as well as during report card time.  

At RTHS you will be assessed on your achievement of both outcomes and competencies.

  • Outcomes - statements from the programs of study that describe what you are expected to know and be able to do in a subject. 
  • Competencies – interrelated attitudes/skills/knowledge that are demonstrated through the outcomes, present in the front part of the programs of study and essential for exemplary success in the discipline in school and in the world – collaboration, problem solving, global understanding are examples

More information can be found in our assessment letter.

​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.​​​​​
