What does Evaluation look like on a Report Card?
Your mark will be determined by your most consistent level of recent achievement. Your understanding of the course material will be assessed using four categories:
• Knowledge/Understanding Do you get it?
• Communication Can you say it?
• Thinking Can you add to it?
• Application Can you do it?
Your learning skills will also be assessed over the duration of your course:
• Responsibility Do you complete work and manage your behavior?
• Organization Can you predict, prepare, process and proceed?
• Independent Work Do you complete tasks seeking teacher assistance when necessary?
• Collaboration Do you share, support, respect, and co-operate?
• Initiative Do you meet challenges and seek more?
• Self-Regulation Can you set goals and monitor your progress?
Your midterm and final report cards will include teacher comments in each of the following areas:
• Strengths What are you good at?
• Next Steps How can you work on it?
What if you skip a few Units?
You must attempt each unit in the course. Incomplete units will significantly reduce your mark and may put your credit at risk.
What do Marks Mean?
Your teacher can express your mark using feedback, percentages (75%) or levels (3).
• Your midterm report marks are calculated based on 5 of 10 units for GLS?
• Your final report marks will be calculated as follows:
• 70% of your final grade will be based on your 10 units
• 30% of your final grade will be based on your final evaluation.
Missed Evaluations and Plagiarism
Submitting evidence of your learning helps you and the teacher see an accurate reflection of your progress. Missing an evaluation could put your credit at risk. Plagiarism is pretending someone else’s work is your own. Do not do it! As a consequence, you may have to write the assignment over again or receive a zero.
