Assessment Evaluation and Communication 107
Assessment Evaluation and Communication

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.


Our procedures and process for assessment, evaluation and reporting at Keswick High School are outlined below and stem from the fundamental principles found in the Ministry of Education’s document: Growing Success – Assessment, Evaluation and Reporting: Improving Student Learning.


Policy for Evaluation and Reporting

The evaluation of all achievement demonstrated in this course is based on the ministry categories of Knowledge and Understanding, Thinking, Application, and Communication as described in the Course Outline.

  • Permanent assignment of “zero” only on mid-semester and final report card for assignments and projects not completed
