EVALUATION POLICIES
 
Bishop Allen Academy
Guidelines for Late and Missing Assignments
 

 

 
The primary purpose of assessment and evaluation is to improve student learning.  Thus assessment and evaluation are important tools for adapting curriculum and instructional approaches to students’ needs and for determining the overall effectiveness of programs and classroom practices. Teachers work with their students as coaches, encouraging students to develop time management skills; students at the earlier grades will need more support while it is expected that students at the senior grades will demonstrate maturity and responsibility with respect to deadlines.   Students experience more academic success when there is a three-way partnership among students, teachers, and parents. Students are given agendas with which they are to track assignments.  Parents are encouraged to monitor their child’s assignment and test dates to help them to better manage their time and workload.
 
At Bishop Allen Academy we strongly believe in the 7 Principles of Highly Effective Assessment.  Effective assessment is:
  1. Comprehensive
  2. Valid
  3. Informative
  4. Equitable
  5. Ethical
  6. Collaborative
  7. A Pursuit of Excellence   (Assessment for Learning-TCDSB Policy 2005)
 
Assessment and evaluation at Bishop Allen Academy is based on the Ministry of Education documents entitled Program Planning and Assessment - Grades 9 to 12, 2000, and Growing Success:  Assessment, Evaluation, and Reporting Grades 9 to 12, 2010.   The Bishop Allen policy also incorporates the TCDSB document Assessment and Evaluation of Student Achievement in Catholic Schools:  Intermediate and Senior Divisions Policy 2005.  Bishop Allen Academy’s policy for late and missing assignments is in alignment with these three documents.  Teachers are to communicate assignment and test deadlines clearly. Students are challenged to take responsibility for monitoring their workload and for communicating to teachers when they are unable to meet established deadlines.  The purpose of the late policy is to develop in students a sense of personal responsibility while striving for consistent academic excellence.
