Class Mark : Major Quizzes, Summative Assignments, and Unit Exams
Students will be required to complete all of these in order to have a term mark.
The key to success in Chemistry 30 is to have a good foundation in the basics of Chemistry 20. The first seven days are critical. Regular completion of homework exercises will reinforce the concepts learned. Homework will be checked on a regular basis. Work hard and have a good year!
The key to success is not a secret: good attendance, working in class, and doing the homework. Work hard and have a good year!
The Elk Island Public School Assessment Policy requires that "teachers shall ensure ongoing, meaningful, consistent and accurate assessment for all students." The assessment policy requires that teachers provide three types of assessments: assessment as learning, assessment for learning (formative assessment) and assessment of learning (summative assessment).
Assessment "as" learning
Assessment "for" Learning
Assessment "of" Learning
Assessment "as" learning is using assessment activities to teach students how to self assess. Students begin to ask what did I do wrong and how can I improve future work?
Formative assessment is the on-going practice of no-risk activities. It is assessment FOR learning.
Summative assessment is the evidence we use to determine student achievement in relation to the curriculum outcomes. Summative assessments are used to determine students' grades.
