Assessment & Reporting

Four Point Indicator Scale

The report card summarize and communicate student achievement at a point in time.  At the CBE, students in K-9 receive two formal report cards a year.  Students in grades 10-12 can expect to receive a minimum of two report cards a year.

Student achievement is reported using teacher comments and achievement indicators; the four point scale for K-9 and percentages for grades 10-12. 

In K-9, the achievement indicators (Excellent-4, Good-3, Basic-2, not meeting-1) signify the extent to which a student has demonstrated achievement of Alberta Programs of Study outcomes organized by report card stem. Report card stems are categories used to organize the Albert Programs of Study outcomes. 

The four point indicator scale is:

1 – Not meeting:  The student demonstrates a beginning level of understanding. 

2 – Basic:  The student demonstrates a developing level of understanding.  

3 – Good:  The student demonstrates a well-developed level of understanding. 

4 – Excellent:  The student demonstrates a mastery level of understanding.


  • There are two reporting periods during the school year - January and June.
  • Student report cards are accessible online through your child's PowerSchool account.

​​​​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.
