Core Competencies Assessment & Reporting
you may know, the new curriculum was implemented this year for Grades 8 & 9
in all subject areas. A component of
this new curriculum is the Core Competencies focusing on Communication,
Creative Thinking, Critical Thinking, Personal Awareness, Positive Cultural
Identity and Social Responsibility.
Though instruction in Core Competencies is taking place in all subject
areas, the assessment for these competencies is a student self-assessment. This assessment is part of the year end
reporting process. We will be retaining
a copy of the assessment in student files while the original will be sent home

their Applied Design, Skills, and Technology classes. Grade 9s will complete the in their Science
classes. All students will be reflecting

take ownership of my goals, learning, and behavior.
will be sending the self-assessments home by June 16th. We will send a Synervoice message at that
time so parents/guardians know when to expect these reports to arrive. Instructions on how to upload the assessments
to the MyEd BC Parent & Student Portal will be included.

opportunity. Please ensure your child
