The Foundation Skills Assessment is an annual province-wide assessment of British Columbia students’ academic skills, and provides a snapshot of how well BC students are learning foundation skills in Reading Comprehension, Writing, and Numeracy.

The main purpose of the assessment is to help the province, school districts, schools and school planning councils evaluate how well students are achieving basic skills, and make plans to improve student achievement.  FSA is designed and developed by British Columbia educators.  The skills assessed are linked to the provincial curriculum and provincial performance standards.

The assessment is administered annually to Grade 4 and 7 students in public and provincially funded independent schools.

FSA 2017 Assessment Administration Dates
Assessment Administration in Schools runs from:  January 9 to February 17, 2017

MOE/CMSD82 Community Meeting K-9 Student Progress Reporting, Nov. 28, 2016
(PDF Format Poster)

 

kids

British Columbia’s new school curriculum is making sure students are ready to succeed in our changing world. The Ministry of Education wants parents to share how they want to learn about their child’s progress from Kindergarten to Grade 9. Together with educators, the government is developing a new reporting approach for students in Kindergarten to Grade 9, to give parents a deeper understanding of their child’s progress at school. With new curriculum being implemented in B.C. classrooms this school year, the way student progress is reported must change too.

The Ministry’s parent engagement on student reporting will run from October 2016 to February 28, 2017. There will be two primary ways for parents to be involved and have an opportunity to provide feedback on student reporting:

  • Online Feedback Forum at www.engage.gov.bc.ca/yourkidsprogress/ (information about changes to the curriculum, future of student reporting with a series of questions asking for parent feedback).
  • Community Sessions in 10 locations around the province including Terrace on November 28, 2016 hosted by Coast Mountains Board of Education School District 82.  The community meetings will be open-house style for the first two hours. Parents and interested community members can come in and learn more, talk to Ministry and school district staff, and then complete a feedback form. The last hour will be a Ministry facilitated design session specifically focused on the future of reporting student progress.
