At Joane Cardinal-Schubert High School, students, parents, and teachers will have many conversations about assessment. These conversations will be important to broaden our understanding of assessment as essential factors for learning, growth and future goals, not just marks. Assessment happens on a daily basis - during class time, throughout the year, and during report card times. Our assessment will focus on outcomes and skills put forward by Alberta Education .
Outcomes - Statements from the programs of study that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do in a subject.
Students can expect to complete a variety of tasks (tests, assignments, presentations, self-assessments, etc.) to show what they know. Teachers will assess work through conversations/observations/rubrics. Some tasks will be a part of ongoing formative feedback to determine next step of student learning. Some tasks will be summative and compare student achievement against what is required. On report cards, students will see both percentages (as required by Alberta Education) and comments. Students and parents should visit teachers' learning management systems regularly for ongoing assessment information.
