Graduation Numeracy Assessment
THIS EXAM IS REQUIRED FOR GRADUATION
All grade 10 AND 11 students are expected to write the Ministry of Education’s Graduation Numeracy Assessment (GNA) this school year. This assessment will take place on June 21st with two sittings (8:30 AM or 12:30 PM). Students will be scheduled to one of those two sittings shortly (schedule to be posted shortly).
– the GNA typically takes two hours to complete; however, students may use additional time if needed.
– assessment questions are delivered online but require both computer-based and hand-written responses.
– the GNA is NOT tied to a specific math course. Rather, it evaluates a student’s numeracy skills developed over the course of their education
– results will be reported using a proficiency scale out of 4 which means that students will not receive a percentage nor a letter grade, but instead will receive a 1, 2, 3 or 4. There are not any credits associated with this REQUIRED assessment – transcripts will show RM (Requirements Met) and a score out of 4.
– For more information regarding the assessment itself, including samples as well as a parent brochure https://curriculum.gov.bc.ca/assessment/numeracy-assessment.
