Assessment Policy at BCHS

Purpose and Beliefs
  • Our assessment policy brings our practices in line with the principles of the IB Programme.
  • Our goal is to do what's best for kids, and in the long term we believe all of us will be served by a more consistent and transparent approach to assessment and grading.
  • We understand that students learn at different paces. Points will not be reduced for mastering a learning target later than someone else does.
  • Students are to be provided ample time and multiple chances in the classroom to meet a learning target. 
  • Not every student needs to meet a learning target in the same way. Students are allowed different paths to meet the same learning target.
