Assessment & Reporting

Report Cards 

Report Cards are one portion of the communication process regarding your student's process toward grade level expectations. The report card reflects a comparison of your student's demonstration of understanding in each subject area to each Alberta Program of Study.

Student achievement on the Report Card is documented in two ways:  

Achievement Indicators (numbers from 1-4) are explained on the first page of the report card, please review this chart. A teacher uses observations during learning tasks, conversations during learning tasks, and products (stories, mathematical representations, presentations, etc.) that the students complete and then compares this to the expectations from the Alberta Program of Studies to determine Achievement Indicators that best reflects each student’s understanding. Teachers use the most recent, consistent evidence of student understanding when determining which indicator best reflected a student’s current overall understanding.

Descriptive Comments explain the items the teacher would like you to know regarding both success and areas for growth.  

If you would like to learn more about the Alberta Programs of Study associated with your student’s specific  grade level, please visit:  

Other ways you will learn about your student's achievement will be:  

  • Learning conferences 
  • Emails 
  • Telephone calls 
  • Notes in the agenda

​​​​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.​ 

Digital report cards are available through MyCBE​. For help with accessing student assessment and reporting information, please refer to the information in the MyCBE Technical Support for Students & Parents Support website. 

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