See how B.C. students are doing – check out assessment results for reading, writing and numeracy skills. Annually, B.C. students enrolled in Grades 4 and 7 participate in the Foundation Skills Assessment.
The assessment is developed by B.C. educators to measure learning skills linked to the provincial curriculum and performance standards. Results help the Province, school districts and schools keep track of how well our education system is doing and identify learning areas that may need improvement.
If your child participates, by March 31, you will receive a copy of your child’s assessment results and student response booklet – sample test questions, written work from your child, along with a scoring guide.
Please remember that Foundation Skills Assessment results are not used in preparing student’s final grades. Rather they serve as a complement to other measurements, like classroom assessments and report card marks. This helps provide a more in-depth look at each student’s development of basic skills.
