  3. 3. ASSESSMENT AND REPORT CARD UPDATE You will have noticed updates in our newsletters regarding assessment and reporting in Battle River School Division. SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO REPORT CARDS FOR 2010-2011: • In BRSD, kindergarten achievement will be reported as Beginning, Developing and Achieving. LEVEL (ECS) DESCRIPTION Think of it as a progression from… Beginning BEG Skill / learner outcome is emerging with direct support. Evidence indicates a beginning level of understanding. Getting started Developing DEV Skill / learner outcome is emerging with minimal support. Evidence indicates a basic level of understanding. Starting to get it Achieving ACH Demonstrates skill / learner outcome independently and consistently. Evidence indicates a solid level of understanding. Got it Not Yet Assessed NYA Skill / learner outcome has not yet been introduced and/or assessed. • In Grades 4-6 achievement will no longer be reported in percentages and there will be no class averages. Achievement in Grades 1-6 will be communicated in 4 levels: Beginning, Developing, Achieving and Excelling. LEVEL Grade 1-9 DESCRIPTION Think of it as a progression from… Beginning BEG At this level, the evidence of learning shows a student has beginning understanding of the learner outcomes. Evidence shows there is not yet full understanding or ability to apply the concepts being taught. The evidence does not yet meet the standards for grade level. Getting started Developing DEV At this level, the evidence of learning shows a student has a basic, developing understanding of the learner outcomes. Evidence shows the student is not yet demonstrating a complete ability to apply the concepts being taught. The evidence meets the acceptable standard for grade level. Starting to get it Achieving ACH At this level, the evidence of learning indicates a solid understanding of the learner outcomes. Evidence is accurate and well thought out. The evidence capably demonstrates the acceptable standard for grade level. Got it Excelling EXC At this level, the evidence of learning indicates a convincing, in-depth understanding of the learner outcomes. Evidence is perceptive and indicates an ability to apply the learning in varied situations. The evidence skillfully demonstrates the acceptable standard for grade level. Really got it! Missing Evidence MEV This statement indicates that there is not enough evidence or the evidence is too incomplete for assessment to take place. Please be patient with us at the school as we embark on our own learning journey of putting these changes into effect. We are at the BEGinning level of this process ourselves but are working hard to implement these changes and make it work.
