Grade 7 learners will demonstrate an understanding of percent and of the relationship between decimals and fractions, the four operations of decimals, the addition and subtraction of fractions, and mixed numbers integers, and they will determine and explain divisibility rules. They will demonstrate an understanding of oral and written patterns and their equivalent relations. Learners will construct and graph a table of values, and they will analyze the graph to draw conclusions as well as demonstrate an understanding of preservation of equality. They will evaluate an expression given the value of the variable, and model and solve linear equations. Learners will demonstrate an understanding of circles, develop and apply formulars for determining area of shapes, perform geometric constructions, and perform transformations using the Cartesian plane. They will demonstrate an understanding of central tendency and range, determine the effect of an outlier, and learn about circle graphs. Learners will demonstrate an understanding that probability can be expressed as a ratio, fraction, and percent, and they will conduct probability experiments and identify their sample spaces.
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.
