Graduation assessments have changed to align with the new curriculum. As part of the updated graduation requirements, students in the B.C. Graduation Program will complete three provincial assessments. These assessments focus on the demonstration and application of numeracy and literacy. The graduation assessments are a valuable indicator of where individual students might have challenges in literacy and numeracy and can be used to help plan their education. They also provide a snapshot of how our education system is meeting the needs of students in these key areas.
