On Wednesday January 23rd at 9am in Room 318 Grade 11 students are required to complete the Graduation Numeracy Assessment.
Completion of this assessment is a requirement of the new graduation program.
The Graduation Numeracy Assessment is based on mathematical concepts learned across multiple subjects from Kindergarten to Grade 12, with an emphasis on K-9. It requires students to solve problems by using the five numeracy processes (different ways of thinking and working) interpret, apply, solve, analyze and communicate.
