Graduation assessments have changed to align with the BC’s redesigned curriculum and international trends for large-scale assessments. As part of the updated graduation requirements, students in the New Graduation Program will have to complete two provincial assessments. They will focus on the demonstration and application of numeracy and literacy.
The numeracy assessment was introduced in the 2017/18 school year.
The literacy assessment was introduced in the 2019/20 school year.
