Grades 1 to 6: achievement is reported as a letter grade with a plus or minus sign as appropriate.
For students in grades 1 to 8 whose achievement is reported as “R” on the provincial report card, teachers should describe the specific remedial measures or strategies that have been developed to address the student’s specific learning needs and the parental support required.
Teachers should contact the parents as soon as possible in order to consult with them and involve them in supporting the student.
Grade 7 and 8: teachers will use the code “R”, to indicate achievement below 50%.
Students enrolled in a school for 42 days or more must be issued a report card.
For students in Grades 9 to 12 whose achievement is recorded at below 50 per cent, teachers should describe specific remedial measures that are planned or strategies that have been developed as well as the kind of parental support that will be required.
In such cases, teachers should contact the parents as soon as possible in order to consult with them and involve them in supporting the student.
For grades 9 and 10, “I” is used to indicate insufficient evidence – it is not intended to be used for students with chronic absenteeism.
For the report card, teachers will use their professional judgement to determine when the use of “I” is appropriate and in the best interests of the student.
In addition to reports mandated by ministry policy, communication with parents and students about student achievement should be continuous throughout the year, by means such as parent-teacher or parent-student-teacher conferences, portfolios of student work, student-led conferences, interviews, phone calls, checklists and informal reports.
Communication about student achievement should be designed to provide detailed information that will encourage students to set goals for learning, help teachers to establish plans for teaching, and assist parents in supporting learning at home.
The median is the percentage mark at which 50 per cent of the students in the course have a higher percentage mark and 50 percent of the students have a lower percentage mark.
Students who have a mark below 50% or an “I” for a particular course on their report card and students whose report cards have the boxes for IEP and or ESL/ELD checked are included in the calculation of the median.
All students in grade 7 or 8 who are studying the subject/strand should be included in the calculation of the median of the median for the subject/strand.
Grades 9 to 12 – all students who are taking the course should be included in the calculation of the median for the course.
