The responsibilities within Evaluation and Assessment include monitoring student achievement through provincial examinations. The objective of both is to improve teaching and learning and to keep the public informed about the educational system's general health. Provincial assessments function as a reasonable and cost-effective gauge of an individual student's or school's overall achievement.



Elementary School

Provincial Literacy Assessment at Grade 2

The Grade 2 reading assessment will be replaced. With the reintroduction of Grade 1 French Immersion, the English Reading Assessment would not be appropriate for students in the immersion program. Consultation has begun for development of a more authentic, age-appropriate assessment process for Grade 2 literacy, building on the work of the Priority Delivery Unit on early literacy. As this will involve the development of a new assessment process for Grade 2, we anticipate a two-year gap in being able to report achievement results. We anticipate results in the fall of 2021.
