Graduation Numeracy Assessment 

 

As part of the updated graduation requirements, all students are required to write a provincial numeracy assessment. The results of the numeracy assessment will be reported on students’ transcripts, using a four-point proficiency scale: 

  

1 Emerging (initial understanding) 

2 Developing (partial understanding) 

3 Proficient (complete understanding) 

4 Extending (sophisticated understanding)

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.
