Grading Standards

"Assessment should provide students with multiple ways to demonstrate what they know and are able to do." MOE IRPs, Considerations for Program Delivery

Assessments are expressed using the Ministry of Education Grading Scale and Marking Standards.

Student progress will be noted on progress reports using the Rating Scales in conjunction with comments from teacher observations.

In Grades K-3, the following scale is used in formal assessments. 
In Grades K-12, some teachers also use this scale for informal assessment of student work.

1 - Not Yet Meeting Expectations
2 - Approaching Expectations
3 - Meeting Expectations
4 - Exceeding Expectations

In Grades 4-9 letter grades appear in formal assessments.
In Grades 10-12 letter grades accompanied by a percentage mark appear in formal assessments.
