Jan 13-16: Flex Blocks - Support sessions for Literacy Assessment

Preparing for the Assessment


Before every assessment, we will provide support for students during flex blocks. Students will attend two sessions, one with a focus on answering questions and the other with a focus on understanding the structure of the assessment.  

If students also wish to do some individual preparation, they can visit the Ministry website. There are pre-assessment activities for students to explore.  These include the sample assessment and a series of videos that explain how to solve questions using the five numeracy processes.
