Grade 4 learners will demonstrate an understanding of how numbers are related to each other, how to estimate quantities, the application of place value, and the meaning of fractions and decimals. They will demonstrate an understanding of all four operations of whole numbers and the addition and subtraction of decimals, and they will recall some multiplication and division facts by applying mental math strategies. Learners will demonstrate an understanding of patterns and their relationships found in tables, charts, and diagrams, as well as represent and solve equations. They will demonstrate an understanding of the area of shapes and symmetry, read and record the passage of time, and describe and construct objects and shapes. Learners will demonstrate an understanding of many-to-one correspondence, and construct and interpret graphs to draw conclusions.
The Guiding Principles for the Design of Learning Experiences and Assessment Practices provide guidance to all Manitoba educators as they design learning experiences and classroom assessments to strengthen, extend, and expand student learning. Planning with the learner, the context, and the curricula in mind creates opportunities for the co-construction of inclusive learning experiences and assessment practices where the diverse learning needs, abilities, and interests of each learner are met.
Assessment for and as learning involve learners in the process and support learner reflection; assessment of learning (commonly known as summative evaluation) measures final outcomes. All aspects, when done well, contribute to informed teaching and reliable judgment of learner progress.
The Guiding Principles for Evaluation and Reporting are currently still under development and not yet available. When completed, a notification will be added to the Manitoba Framework for Learning “What’s New?” page on the website.
