As many know, there have been some changes in the way assessment and reporting is done in PSSD and across the province. You may have seen some of these changes when your child brings home assignments and rubrics are used. You may have seen these changes on the new grade 1-6 report card with codes rather than marks. You may have also seen these changes with how teacher comments have become much more descriptive and specific for your child’s success.
Do you have questions about Prairie Spirit School Division’s changes in assessment and reporting? Were you not able to attend our LAS Assessment Night in November? Are you curious about what the “experts” actually have to say about it? Are you wondering how you can support your child at home?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions please consider attending the PSSD Public Forum and Panel Discussion on Assessment and Reporting Monday, February 3rd at Warman Community Middle School. We at LAS are always ready and willing to answer your questions, whatever they may be, but we also recognize sometimes parents and community members simply want to go straight to the source. Personally, I find that knowledge is power, so feel free to empower yourself and develop your understanding of the changes happening within the education system.
