Grade 11 & 12 Numeracy Graduation Assessment Rewrites – sign up by Oct. 7th.

Grade 11 and 12 students who wish to rewrite the Numeracy 10 Graduation Assessment must sign up by Monday, October 7th.  There is a sign-up sheet in the office. The date for the rewrite is Wednesday, November 6th from 9 am to 12 pm in the library.  No assessments can be ordered for the November sitting after October 7th.  Writing the Numeracy 10 Assessment is a Graduation Requirement.  If students are not sure if they wrote or what mark they got they must sign in to their BCeID account and check their transcript.  

Graduation Assessments – Literacy & Numeracy

Graduation assessments are changing to align with the new curriculum.  Last June marked the end of course-based provincial exams.  As part of the updated graduation requirements, students in the B.C. Graduation Program will have to complete three or four provincial assessments. They will focus on the demonstration and application of numeracy and literacy.
Please note that starting next year students on the French Immersion Dual Dogwood program write two Literacy Assessments in grade 12 – one in English and one in French.  (https://curriculum.gov.bc.ca/assessment/literacy-assessment)

What Graduation Assessments your child will need to write based on what grade your child is currently in.

  • All grade 10 students in the NVSD will write the LITERACY 10 Graduation Assessment during the week of January 20th to 24th.
  • All grade 10 students in the NVSD will write the NUMERACY 10 Graduation Assessment during the week of April 14th to 20th.
  • Note – these dates are different than what was published in the PDF calendar sent out in August.  The dates have been updated on the calendar on the school website.
  • Note -  the Ministry of Education has not scheduled a Numeracy 10 or Literacy 10 Assessment session at the end of June.  Grade 10 students wishing to rewrite either assessment will need to do so in their grade 11 or 12 year.
