Grade 6 students will demonstrate an understanding of place value, integers, ratio, percent, multiples, factors, and fractions. They will demonstrate an understanding of all four operations of whole numbers and decimals, and explain and apply the order of operations. Students will demonstrate an understanding of patterns and relationships found in tables and graphs, represent generalizations arising from number relationships using equations, and explain the meaning of preservation of equality. They will demonstrate an understanding of angles, triangles, and polygons, and develop and apply formulas for determining perimeter, area, and volume. Students will perform and describe transformations of shapes, and they will learn about the Cartesian plane. They will select, justify, collect, and graph data, and interpret and analyze a variety of graphs. Students will demonstrate an understanding of experimental and theoretical probabilities of events.
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.
