Assessment & Evaluation

General Information on Assessment & Evaluation

On every report card, students are evaluated on six learning skills and work habits separately from their mark. They identify the student's strengths and the areas in which improvements are needed.

The six learning skills and work habits are: responsibility, organization, independent work, collaboration, initiative, and self regulation.
The learning skills and work habits are evaluated and reported as follows: E – Excellent, G – Good, S – Satisfactory, N – Needs Improvement.

Ongoing assessment will occur to allow students the opportunity to be successful. Students will be evaluated in four categories of the achievement chart. The four categories are: knowledge, thinking/inquiry, communication, and application.

Assessment and Evaluation
