Special Education Department Assessment, Evaluation and Communication Policy 107
Special Education Department Assessment, Evaluation and Communication Policy
Assessment, evaluation and communication of student learning and achievement are essential components of the teaching and learning process. The role of assessment is to improve student learning by providing information needed to direct the instruction to meet each student’s strengths, needs and interests. Student involvement in assessment practices increases engagement, learning and achievement. High-quality assessment practices provide students with multiple and varied opportunities to demonstrate achievement and lead to deeper learning.


The expectation is that all assignments for evaluation will be written / submitted on time.

·    If you are going to be away on an assigned due-date for a prearranged reason, it is you responsibility to submit the assignment on a date that is mutually agreed upon by you and your classroom teacher.

·    Absences are considered acceptable for reasons such as illness, family bereavement, and/or pre-arranged family vacation (Forms can be picked up at Attendance Office).

·    In the event that you do not complete the assignment for evaluation, an opportunity to make up the assignment will be provided according to Board Policy.


Responses and Application of Consequences:

In the event that an assignment for evaluation is not completed on the assigned date, your teacher will engage in solution-focused dialogue with you and/or your parent(s)/guardian(s) to determine and document appropriate consequences and responses which may include a combination of the following:

·       Completion and submission of the late/missed assignment or an alternate assignment

·       Renegotiation of timelines for submission, after which a mark of zero may be assigned

·       Deduction of marks for late assignments (1% per day per category maximum)


*For consequences arising from instances of plagiarism and cheating, please refer to the KHS Academic Integrity Policy.
