We invite you to view our Assessment and Evaluation Guide as the basis for assessment, evaluation and reporting practices in all schools within the Huron Perth Catholic District School Board. The guide provides support for educators as they assess, evaluate and report on student achievement and assist all students to reach their potential in a Christ-centered learning environment.
“The use of assessment for the purpose of improving learning and helping students become independent learners requires a culture in which student and teacher learn together in a collaborative relationship, each playing an active role in setting learning goals, developing success criteria, giving and receiving feedback, monitoring progress, and adjusting learning strategies.
The teacher acts as a “lead learner”, providing support while gradually releasing more and more responsibility to the student, as the student develops the knowledge and skills needed to become an independent learner.”
