Assessment and Evaluation

Middle Years Assessment

Provincial Results

Manitoba students in Grade 7 undergo classroom-based provincial assessments in numeracy competencies and in student engagement, and in Grade 8 in competencies in reading and writing. Evaluation criteria, including the competencies, scoring scales, and indicators of achievement, are provided by Manitoba Education and Training and are used by teachers when reporting achievement results for these assessments to parents and to the Department.

For numeracy, reading and writing, there is also an “out of range—below” performance level; therefore, the data presented do not add up to 100 percent. For student engagement, there is also an “out of scope” category, and therefore the data presented do not add up to 100%.
