Assessment, Evaluation & Reporting
Our Supporting Handbook
Recognition that improved student learning is the primary purpose behind assessment, evaluation and reporting practice represents one of the most important changes in our classrooms today. In keeping with this purpose, Foothills School Division revised its assessment, evaluation and reporting policy. In order to support teachers with the implementation of this policy, our Division also created this Handbook, which states: “The purpose of this supporting handbook is to lend practical support to teachers and administrators across Foothills School Division as they implement this new policy. The content of this handbook is also offered to parents as an informative document to apprise them of the changes in assessment, reporting and evaluation practices.”
The Learner Profile
The Learner Profile, developed by our Division and used in conjunction with the supporting software, Students Achieve, embraces best practice by providing parents with more detailed information concerning their child’s learning:
This alignment of policy, practice, tools and resources for the purpose of assessment, evaluation and reporting of student learning, is an important step in continuing to ensure high levels of learning for all students in Foothills School Division.
