The adjudication process ensures that students who have demonstrated a need for supports within the educational setting have access to those same supports during provincial assessments.
- See the B.C. Graduation Program Policy Guide (PDF) for policy regarding Adjudication for the Grades 10, 11 and 12 provincial assessments
- Read Chapter 2: B.C. Graduation Program Handbook of Procedures (PDF) for information on the adjudication process
Complete a Request for Special Format Assessments. Note a separate form will be required for each session request.
The adjudication process provides equity and accessibility to students with diverse abilities/disabilities who qualify for adaptations on graduation assessments.
Decisions to provide non-technological supports (readers and scribes) should be made based on the learning needs, learning styles and special needs of the student.
