ASSESSMENT POLICY AND PRACTICES
At BSCIS, whether assessment is course-based (eg. rubrics), school-based (eg. tests), or province-based (eg. Literacy or Numeracy Assessment), results are analyzed by our educators to inform their planning and practice. Discussions on assessment results are shared across the curriculum with teachers, and goals are set for individual students. Bi-weekly, we have team-based discussions on student learning and student progress. Results are shared with students to guide self-assessment and set goals for improvement. And, results are shared with parents to inform and support the learning goals for their child. We also share assessment information and data with the students' Japanese teachers as a commitment to supporting student learning in a double-diploma system. Formal reporting to parents occur three times each year with the additional two interim reports and two student-led conferences.
