Assessment and Evaluation in Ontario Schools #2

With Report Cards right around the corner it is important to have a good understand of how the achievement of children is assessed at school. For the next few weeks we will be sharing info-graphics that outline some of the assessment strategies and reporting requirements in Ontario schools.

How do Teachers Assess Learning? Not only are teachers assessing students throughout the learning cycle, they are looking for evidence in multiple ways. Teachers try to triangulate their understanding of each student’s individual achievement by observing them, talking with them and asking them to complete tasks. By assessing a student’s learning in multiple ways, we are able to capture the depth of a student’s knowledge and skills.
