Assessment & Reporting

The process of assessing student learning is an ongoing cycle of gathering, interpreting and responding to assessment information from a wide range of sources. It is an essential component of all learning tasks.

Students are active participants in monitoring what they know and can do, building understandings of how they learn best, and making decisions about next steps in learning. Students take an active role in developing criteria for learning tasks, in gathering and reflecting on evidence of their learning and in identifying goals and strategies to support individual growth and progress.

Report Cards

Ongoing communication between teachers, students and parents occurs in service of learning. Specific, constructive, timely, actionable feedback ensures that teachers, parents and students clearly understand and can support the student’s progress towards learning outcomes. Effective communication practices ensure that parents clearly understand the process by which they could always answer the question, ‘How is my child doing at school?’

Parents and Guardians are welcome to contact teachers or administrators any time they would like information on their child’s progress. In addition to this, a Celebration of Learning is held in December during which progress may be discussed.

Student report cards are sent home twice in a school year and parents and guardians are encouraged to discuss these with their child’s teacher.

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

​​​​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.
