- NR = Not Reportable (too few students to report results in accordance with the Department’s confidentiality guidelines).
- Students who did not write for reasons other than an approved exemption are not included in the calculation of the Grade 10 and French Second Language Oral Proficiency results. This will be the case for the reporting of all assessments beginning in 2018-19.
In certain circumstances, it is necessary and appropriate for students to be exempted from participating in provincial assessments if the testing format does not allow demonstration of their learning, even with accommodations. Exemptions fall into three broad categories: academic, social/emotional and unforeseen. Typically, academic exemptions are sought for students following an individualized Personalized Learning Plan (PLP-I). Students who are exempt due to an PLP-I should be assessed on those goals that are set out in their Personalized Learning Plan (PLP).
The Exemption Rates table identifies the percentage of students who were formally excused from a provincial assessment. All students are included in the overall reporting of provincial assessment results.
