This year is unique in so many ways. We are finding more and more of our learners are not at the same place in their learning as their same age peers would have been previously. Are we surprised? No. Should you be surprised? I hope not. All of our students lost great learning opportunities as a result of emergency teaching in the spring. Further causing delays are all of the limitations to instruction we are faced with daily, regardless of if you are in face-to-face learning or HUB.  Teaching and learning is simply not the same as years past. Additional literacy/ math instruction for struggling learners (often referred to as double dosing), homogeneous groupings across classes and grades to target specific learning, even home reading programs, math games, and trips to the learning commons all lost to Covid-19.  In the spring we promised all of our families that when we returned to learning in the fall, we would meet every learner where they were at and we would move them forward. We continue to do this, Every, Single. Day. We are not lowering our standards, nor are we deviating from the expectations set out by the Alberta Ministry of Education.  There are gaps in the learning of our children. In the days and weeks to come, we will continue to speak to you about your child’s learning. Formal report cards will be shared the first week of February to document your child’s learning.   

In the side bar of this page, under resources, you will find the "How is My Child Doing In School" flat sheet outlining what the report card indicators 1, 2, 3 and 4 represent. Likewise, below is the familiar wording CJP teachers use in their report cards to remain consistent across and between grades when we speak of child learning. If you are used to seeing your child with 3s and 4s on their report card, there is an increased chance you should anticipate 2s.  

While a 2 is meeting grade level expectations, it is only adequate. A 2 represents that the learner is on the cusp and likely needs additional understanding of regular tasks to stay on pace with grade level expectations. The learner could be in jeopardy of falling below grade level expectations should interventions and learning be ineffective. Below is a list of words you will see used on your child’s report card in February.

We know that all teachers communicated outcomes and assessment throughout the school year through the body of evidence shared via conferences, phone calls, emails, blog messages, work sent home, celebrations of learning, IRIS, etc. This ongoing communication provides information about your child’s learning throughout the school year, the report card is the summative reporting of all the your child’s work throughout the school year. We hope that you will celebrate all that your child has accomplished so far this year.

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. 

Visit the CBE website for more information on Assessment & Reporting at the CBE. ​​​
