Home / School News / Grade 10 Graduation Numeracy Assessment

 

Dear Parent or Guardians,

All grade 10 students currently enrolled in a math course at Royal Bay Secondary will be writing the Graduation Numeracy Assessment 10 (GNA 10) during the timeframe January 23-24, 2020.  All grade 10 students currently enrolled in an English 10 class will also be writing the Graduation Literacy Assessment (GLA) during this same period. An assessment schedule will be posted in the New Year.  Please see the notes below about this assessment:

  • The GNA 10 and GLA 10 are requirements for graduation.
  • Students are assessed on a four point proficiency scale  – Emerging, Developing, Proficient and Extending
  • There is no “pass” or “fail” – students must write the assessments in order to meet the BC grad requirements.  Students have a chance to rewrite the assessments if they like.
  • The mark is not blended with any subject as was the case with past provincial examinations.  The mark stands alone on the student’s transcript.
