Assessment & Reporting

We want to know what the student understands so that we can increase comprehension of the required content. This is only possible if the student hands in their work. Therefore, students who fall behind in their work will be required to attend mandatory Work Sessions until caught up. Parents/Guardians will be contacted to set aside time at home for the student to complete late assignments.


For each student who is not meeting course expectations, parents/guardians will receive formal communication from the school asking for their attendance at the next Parent/Guardian-Student-Teacher Conference or to a meeting with the teacher(s). At this meeting, the student’s behaviour is reviewed and a plan put in place to help the student reach their potential as a learner. 


Students will be assessed to measure growth in skills and understanding of curricular outcomes. Assessment will take a variety of forms from group to individual, project to test, presentations to essays. Rubrics, scoring guides and other methods of feedback will be provided to students in order to monitor their ongoing understanding of concepts. Parents/Guardians and students are expected to access HomeLogic for updates on assessment.

All K-9 schools use common course outcomes (stems). For each marked assessment, students will receive an indicator for one or more course specific stems. For a detailed listing of the course specific stems, please visit our Classes & Departments page.

Scheduled Evaluations

If a student is absent excused on the date of a test, assessment or assignment it is the student’s responsibility to meet with the teacher and schedule a time to complete the assessment. Students who do not take the opportunity to do so will receive No Evaluation Recorded (NER) which can negatively impact their final mark in the course.

When possible, students must contact the teacher PRIOR to the exam, quiz etc. being written to arrange an alternate due date. An absence is excused by the parent/guardian calling the Attendance Line before the start of the school day. Students who regularly are absent on assessment dates will have to provide a doctor’s note or copy of prescription in order to write the assessment late.

Please note students are required to complete all assessments to ensure that they demonstrate their understanding of the course material and are properly prepared for the next grade. A student who is absent unexcused will be expected to complete missed assessments. At the discretion of the teacher, this assessment may or may not be included in the overall final mark of the student.

For more information about assessment and reporting:


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.
