Numeracy Assessment Information

General Provincial Exam information can be viewed at the BC Ministry of Education website:  http://www.bced.gov.bc.ca/exams/

Some important facts about the assessment include the following:

  • The Numeracy Assessment will not be tied to any course but will measure student proficiency in numeracy.
  • A number from 1-4 (representing 4 proficiency categories: emerging-developing-proficient-extending) will appear on the student's transcript as a 2018 Graduation Program Requirement
  • Students can improve their proficiency by rewriting the assessment twice during their graduation years (grades 10 -12).
