Assessments information

Graduation assessments are required by the Ministry of Education to fulfill graduation requirements.

Students who are enrolled in Math 11 will be required to write the Numeracy 10 Assessments, and students who are enrolled in an English 10 course (Literary Studies, Spoken Language, New Media, Composition or Creative Writing 10) will be required to write the Literacy 10 Assessment.

If your student is enrolled in either a Math 11 or English 10 course in Quarter 1, the assessments will be written between November 1-5. Teachers will be letting their classes know which day and time they are writing.  There is also a schedule posted below.

Grade 12 students will be required to take their Literacy 12 Assessment this year which will be written with their English classes. The graduation requirement for all Grade 12 students this year is completion of the Literacy 10, Numeracy 10 and Literacy 12 assessment.  

Students who have missed their assessments in previous years still need to complete them.  Students must also be registered to write the assessments. Please have students come see Ms. Chan or email Ms. Chan at achan@sd61.bc.ca to register for the assessment by Monday, October 18.

All students writing: please be on time, as you are only allowed to enter in the first 30 minutes after the secure assessment begins.
