Elaborated Scale: Grades 10 to 12 Active Living

This elaborated scale can be used to evaluate student development in this aspect anytime during the year.  Note that evaluation of student progress may require observation of actual student behaviour as written activities or other products may not always offer appropriate evidence. The rating scale may require adaptation when used for different grades, purposes and tasks.
