With the new provincial curriculum and a province wide shift to quality formative assessment, grade 8 students at Smithers Secondary will no longer be receiving letter grades on their report cards or interim reports. This will be consistent with the assessment and student reporting structures this group of students has received during their elementary school years.
Teachers will be reporting on learning outcomes and criteria descriptions rather than handing out a grade. The intent is this will be more motivating for students, and more descriptive of their own individual learning process and engagement.
Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions about their learning.
