Students at Sherwood are assessed in a variety of ways.

Formative Assessment / Assessment for Learning

These strategies involve the gathering of information to help guide student learning and occurs in all classes. These tools are designed to provide feedback for the purpose of improving or advancing their understanding or abilities. This process helps students develop a personal plan for their next steps in learning. Some examples include: Verbal and written feedback, self-assessment, journaling, peer assessment, goal setting, reflecting, revising, error detection and correction, teacher conferencing, etc

Summative Assessment

Also referred to as ‘Assessment of Learning’ summative assessment evaluate a student’s level of knowledge and understanding and assigns a value. Summative assessment occurs at the end of a period of learning and provides students with opportunities to demonstrate their achievement of the learning addressed during that period of time. This assessment describes what students know and can do. It evaluates student growth relative to the Alberta Curriculum and the provincial standards.

Sherwood students will have summative testing experiences throughout the school year in all of their classes. Some examples include: Multiple Choice exams, Performance Tasks, Short Answer exams, Written Products, Essay Exams, Culminating Projects, and Standardized tests.

It is beneficial for students to have a regular time and place for doing homework; this is a positive habit to develop. Parents are encouraged to check notes and assignments on a regular basis and to ensure that homework is completed. Students should keep track of their homework, either by using an agenda or other organizer. 

Student Reporting

Student report cards will be sent home in various formats throughout the year. SIRS generated report cards will go home in January and June. Teachers will ensure that their marks are updated every 1-2 weeks. Teachers will inform parents of student grades/progress either by providing a mark-strip or an email notification to login to either D2L or Home Logic.

Report Cards

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.
