Communicating Student Learning

Classroom assessment is an integral part of the instructional process and can serve as meaningful sources of information about student learning. Feedback from ongoing assessment in the classroom can be immediate and personal for a learner and guide the learner to understand their misconceptions and use the information to set new learning goals.

Given its many benefits for learning, classroom assessment is being given a much higher profile in B.C. than in the past. The province will be providing new supports for this program over the next two years. These tools and resources will be aligned to B.C.’s Know-Do-Understand curriculum model – what student are expected to know, be able to do, and understand.

More information on classroom assessment tools and resources is coming soon.

The following provides a summary of the available materials.
