The Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) recently created a procedure regarding Assessment, Evaluation and Reporting (AER) Grades 7 – 12. The procedure and accompanying board policy 2010 – Assessment, Evaluation and Reporting Policy align with the Ontario Ministry of Education’s Policy Document: Growing Success: Assessment, Evaluation and Reporting in Ontario Schools. The new procedure will take effect September 2013.
The new procedure involves three areas:
- Late and missed assignments
- Cheating and plagiarism
- Lowest mark a student can receive on a report card
