Provincial Assessment Week June 13-June 16

Attention all families of grade 10, 11, & 12 students,

Next week, June 13-16, 2022, we will be administering the Literacy 10 assessments to all grade 10 students. We will also be administering the Literacy 12 Assessment to all remaining grade 12 students – those who did not write this assessment in April 2022, or who those students who wish to re-write the assessment. These assessments are prepared by the BC Ministry of Education and must be written by all students as a part of their graduation requirements. Please see the details below for all the important information.

  • All grade 10 students will write the Literacy 10 Assessment on either Monday June 13 or Tuesday June 14, 2022.  
  • Any grade 11 or 12 students have not yet written the Literacy 10 Assessment previously, will be scheduled to write at the same time as the grade 10s (June 13 or June 14)
  • Any grade 12 students have not yet written the Literacy 12 Assessment, or those who have signed up to re-write the Literacy 12 assessment will be scheduled to write the Literacy 12 Assessment on either Wednesday June 15 or Thursday June 16, 2022.
  • Students can find out the exact date, time, and location of when they are scheduled to write their assessment by checking the lists posted on the windows of the Library. 
    • We encourage all grade 10, 11, & 12 students to check these lists as soon as possible so they know the details of their assessment schedule.
  • There are two exam sittings each day:
    • Morning Assessment: 9:00am-12:00pm
    • Afternoon Assessment: 12:30pm-3:30pm
    • Students are asked to arrive at least 15 minutes before their scheduled sitting (8:45am/12:15pm)  
  • All assessments will be written online.
  • All students should bring photo ID, pens/pencils, and a calculator (numeracy only)
  • Students are assessed on a four-point proficiency scale: Emerging, Developing, Proficient, and Extending
  • There is no “pass” or “fail” – students must write the assessments in order to meet the BC graduation requirements.
  • Assessment results are not blended with any subject mark as was the case with past provincial examinations. The results stand alone on the student’s transcript.
  • The Literacy 10 & 12 Assessments are not tied to a specific English Studies course. Instead, it evaluates a student’s literacy skills developed over the course of their education.
