Assessment for Learning

The redesign of assessment will bring coherence to curriculum, assessment, and communicating student learning. Assessment and curriculum are interconnected. The approach used to redesign assessment will ensure that all forms of assessment and evaluation are aligned with changes in curriculum. Assessments will continue to be rigorous and based on learning standards evaluating student achievement, core competencies, essential learning and literacy and numeracy. However, more flexibility will be introduced into the assessment process wherever possible.
