Communicating Student Learning (CSL)

Communicating Student Learning in SD57

Communicating Student Learning is interwoven with curriculum design, instructional strategies and formative assessment. CSL is a process by which teachers provide a continuous window into student learning, providing timely feedback, meaningful samples and evidence of student learning over time to demonstrate progress in relation to the Learning Standards.

Communicating Student Progress should:

  • Be meaningful, varied, timely and responsive communication throughout the school year; 

  • Use authentic evidence, demonstrating growth over time in what the learner knows, can do, and understands; 

  • Reflect where the child is at in their learning and not necessarily be summative in nature; 

  • Provide evidence that demonstrates growth in relation to the Learning Standards of B.C.’s Curriculum; 

  • Provide value, not only in communicating student progress to parents, but also in feedback for students to inform, deepen and improve learning; and 

  • Use principles of quality assessment that informs both learning and teaching, shifting ownership to shared ownership between learner, teacher, and parent.
