Report cards assess, evaluate, and report on student progress in a faith-centred environment. Assessments are based on oral, performance, and written tasks, and are designed to improve learning. Report card assessments are used to measure:
Based on evidence of achievement, teachers apply professional judgment to assign a letter or number grade in a subject. The grade reflects the student's consistent level of achievement throughout a course, and may give special weight to recent achievement.
Report cards are completed in accordance with Ministry of Education guidelines, provided in the Board elementary school achievement, evaluation, and reporting handbook. Some schools complete additional formal reports, such as the Kindergarten report card and progress reports.
A progress report focuses on a student's overall learning skills, work habits and academic progress in Languages, Mathematics, Religion, Integrated Literacy (Grades 1 to 3) and Core French (Grades 4 to 8). Teachers may also choose another curriculum area on which to comment. The comments are anecdotal, indicate how your child is progressing, and do not contain marks. Kindergarten students do not receive a progress report. They receive a report card at the end of Term 1 in February.
