What your child is learning

I didn’t know that! Students will discover many interesting things by listening to stories, watching documentaries and reading about a variety of topics. Sharing through presentations, they learn how to tell a story, and they listen to ideas for making their presentations better. They write to share information and to show their creativity. For more about Grade 3 French Language Arts, refer to the program of studies.

How your child is assessed

Your child’s learning is assessed using a variety of tools and strategies within the classroom. Ask your child’s teacher what methods they are using. The different assessment methods tell you and your child’s teacher about your child’s strengths, the areas in which they might grow and how well your child is doing throughout the course. Your child’s teacher can then change or refine their teaching plans to ensure that learning activities better meet the needs of your child.

Student Learning Assessments (SLAs) are digitally based provincial assessments available to teachers as a tool to use at their discretion. They provide a beginning-of-the-year “check in.” This enables parents and teachers to learn about and identify student strengths and areas of growth at the start of the school year. The SLAs are based on outcomes related to literacy and numeracy in language arts and mathematics in Alberta’s current Grade 2 provincial programs of study. Some questions include contexts from arts education, health, science and social studies.

The purposes of the SLAs are to:

  • improve student learning (primary purpose)
  • enhance instruction for students.

While the SLAs are helpful in providing assurance at the local level, they will not be used in the Accountability Pillar, Alberta Education’s report to the public on the performance of the education system.
