This year, the BC Ministry of Education has implemented a Graduation Numeracy Assessment and will be introduced to students in January 2018. It is a graduation requirement on the 2018 Graduation Program. This year (2017/18) students in Grade 10 and 11 and beyond are on the Graduation 2018 program and therefore must complete the Numeracy Assessment in order to graduate.
Some important facts about the assessment include the following:
- The Numeracy Assessment will not be tied to any course but will measure student proficiency in numeracy.
- A number from 1-4 (representing 4 proficiency categories: emerging-developing-proficient-extending) will appear on the student's transcript as a 2018 Graduation Program Requirement
- Students can improve their proficiency by rewriting the assessment twice during their graduation years (grades 10 -12).
