Assessment, Evaluation and Reporting, Gr. 1-12 – APC050

Reviewed/Revised: November 2018


The purpose of this memorandum is to outline a common approach and a consistent practice of assessment, evaluation, and reporting, rooted in the Ontario Curriculum, in our elementary and secondary schools to actively and intentionally pursue the Waterloo Catholic District School Board vision: “Our Catholic Schools: heart of the community ~ success for each and a place for all.”

This document is a companion to Growing Success: Assessment, Evaluation, And Reporting in Ontario Schools 2010, published by the Ministry of Education, and provides further direction outlining policy specific to the Waterloo Catholic District School Board.

With this document, we work towards the realization of our vision by living our mission: “As disciples of Christ, educating and nurturing hope in all learners to realize their full potential to transform God’s world.” Waterloo Catholic District School Board’s Vision and Mission provides a distinctive lens for schools to serve students through a continually improving cycle of teaching and learning. In light of our Catholic faith tradition, a fundamental belief in the essential dignity of all learners governs all of our practice and has particular significance in the area of assessment, evaluation and reporting.
