Grade 8 learners will demonstrate an understanding of ratios, rates, proportional reasoning, percents, perfect squares, and square roots. They will demonstrate an understanding of multiplication and division of fractions, mixed numbers, and integers, and they will make connections among all four operations. Learners will graph and analyze linear relations, and model and solve linear equations. They will develop and apply the Pythagorean theorem, and they will draw and construct nets of objects. They will determine the surface area of prisms and cylinders, and they will develop and apply formulas for determining their volume. Learners will draw and interpret views of objects, and they will demonstrate an understanding of tessellations, critique ways in which data are presented, and determine the probability of independent 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.
