Curriculum & Assessment

Curriculum is what students study in a particular course or class. Assessment is how teachers and our education system measure each student’s success in those studies.

We all want students to succeed. Curriculum and assessment provide a foundation for quality education to support our students.


B.C.’s Kindergarten to Grade 12 (K-12) education system is being modernized. As part of this process, new curriculum is being introduced in all B.C. schools.  


Assessment involves the wide variety of methods or tools that educators use to identify student learning needs, measure competency acquisition, and evaluate students’ progress toward meeting provincial learning standards.
