In addition to a student self-assessment of the Core Competencies (Communication, Thinking, and Personal and Social) at the end of the year, at least one point of progress will include student-selected evidence of and a reflection on their Core Competency development.
The Core Competencies underpin all provincial curricula and are relevant to the development of educated citizens. Through self-assessment of the Core Competencies, students set goals and take increased responsibility for their learning. This process of self-assessment nurtures student ownership and voice.
The forms and processes of the self-assessment are to be outlined and determined by the district. Districts, schools, and teachers may find the student profiles on the ministry website helpful in shaping self-assessment of Core Competencies.
