Assessment and Evaluation


Assessment and evaluation will be based on the provincial curriculum expectations and the achievement levels outlined in the document Growing Success 2011/2012 and in the curriculum policy document for each discipline.  The York Catholic document on Asessment and Evaluation will also be consulted.  A final grade is recorded for every course, and a credit is granted and recorded for every course in which the student's grade is 50% or higher.  The final grade for each course in Grades 9-12 will be determined as follows:


Ø       70% of the grade will be based on evaluations conducted throughout the course. 

Ø       30% of the grade will be based on a final evaluation in the form of an examination, performance, essay, and/or other method of evaluation suitable to the course content and administered towards the end of the course.


In all their courses, students must be provided with numerous and varied opportunities to demonstrate the full extent of their achievement of the curriculum expectations, across all four categories of knowledge and skills.
