Assessment & Reporting

Students receive ongoing feedback and assessment for learning (formative assessment) on a daily basis. This is accomplished through many means such as observation, conversation, anecdotal teacher comments, written notes, self/peer assessment, checklists, and rubrics. This information is used to create a broad-based assessment of student understanding, to create actionable feedback, and to guide next steps for instruction and personalization of learning.

Report Cards

Students will receive two report cards in January and June, as well as three formal conference times when families can meet with teachers to discuss student progress in relation to the outcomes in the Program of Studies. We ask that families discuss and analyze student report cards with their child. Our belief in timely, open communication means that we encourage parents/guardians to communicate with teachers at any time during the school year to discuss student progress.

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. ​​​
