Exams & Other Evaluations

Exams & Other Evaluations
Posted on 11/25/2022
Final evaluations for the 2022/2023 school year will be re-introduced at the secondary school level for all courses. Thirty percent (30%) of the final grade will be based on a final evaluation administered at or towards the end of the end of the course. Final evaluations will be based on evidence from one or a combination of the following:
Examination
*Other evaluations: ex. summative, performance, essay etc.

Examinations will only be considered for Grade 11 and 12 courses that are coded as college (C), mixed (M) or university (U) levels. All exams will take place during the identified evaluation period of January 24 - 30, 2023.

No Grade 9 or Grade 10 courses will have exams. *Other evaluations will be assigned in Grade 9 and 10 courses. Grade 9 and 10 students might have an evaluation scheduled during the evaluation period of January 24 - 30 and if so, this will be communicated by the classroom teachers.

For any course (grades 9-12) where student evaluations are not taking place during the evaluation period, the days become **Student Success days for that course. This time will be used to support credit rescue whereby students will complete tasks, assignments, performances etc. informed by their Student Evidence Record to earn their credit.

Important Note Regarding 30% Evaluations: Completion of the 30% evaluation (Gr. 9/10 summatives/performances/essays and Gr. 11/12 examinations) is compulsory and must be completed on the date(s) assigned by the classroom teacher. Absences will only be considered excused for approved extenuating circumstances.

Important Note Regarding January 24 - 30, 2023:
If a Gr. 9-12 student has an evaluation to complete during the Jan. 24 - 30 evaluation time period, they will follow a Day 1/Period 1, Day 2/Period 2, Day 3/Period 3, Day 4/Period 4 format. Specifically:
Jan. 24, 2023: Block A classes with an evaluation will report to their class by 9 AM.
Jan. 25, 2023: Block B classes with an evaluation will report to their class by 9 AM.
Jan. 26, 2023: Block C classes with an evaluation will report to their class by 9 AM.
Jan. 27, 2023: Block D classes with an evaluation will report to their class by 9 AM.

After completing an evaluation (approx. 2-3 h in length), most students will return home for the day to continue studying for their other evaluations. No regular classes will take place from Jan. 24 - 30. Students will have the option of rescuing courses (**see above) in the afternoon of each day from Jan. 24 - 27 and for the full day on Jan. 30, 2023.
