The purpose of these assessments is to measure the extent to which students are literate and numerate and to provide students with information about their proficiency. Overall, the new provincial graduation assessments require students to apply their numeracy and literacy skills in realistic contexts. Rather than assess specific course curricula, the graduation assessments measure the application of numeracy and literacy skills to realistic situations, requiring students to employ the knowledge and skills considered to be essential for future success. The graduation assessments look at students' ability to apply their knowledge and skills and to analyze, reason, and communicate effectively as they examine, interpret, and solve problems. Graduation assessments also emphasize the importance of the context in which students should be able to use their skills (e.g., home, employment, society) (BC Ministry of Education).

The following policies are associated with the new Graduation Assessments:

    • Assessments are required for graduation.
    • Assessments are cross-curricular and stand-alone (not tied to a specific course).
    • Students are expected to take the Grade 10 Graduation Numeracy Assessment in their Grade 10 year.
    • Students are expected to take the Grade 10 Graduation Literacy Assessment in their Grade 10 year.
    • Students are expected to take the Grade 12 Graduation Literacy Assessment in their Grade 12 year. This has been postponed to 2021/22.
    • Students must complete all 3 assessments (Literacy 10, Numeracy 10, Literacy 12) for graduation. Students have up to three opportunities to write the assessments: an initial write (required) and up to two rewrites (optional).
    • Assessments are scored on a proficiency scale.
    • The student's best outcome for each of the Provincial Graduation Assessments will be recorded on their final transcript (BC Ministry of Education).
