GNA 10

RHS GRADE 10s WILL WRITE THE GNA on JANUARY 25-26 - CHECK POSTED SCHEDULES FOR DATE AND TIME.

Numeracy is the willingness and perseverance to interpret and apply mathematical understanding to solve problems in contextualized situations, and to analyze and communicate these solutions in ways relevant to the given context.

The new Numeracy Assessment is not a typical “math test” and will include 24 common questions and a student choice section (answer 2 of 4). The questions will be context placed problems that students will read, think about and present a solution.  The GNA measures 5 numeracy processes, including students’ abilities to INTERPRET, APPLY, SOLVE, ANALYZE and COMMUNICATE solutions. The GNA be not be attached to any course, but reported separately on each student’s official Transcript using a 4-point scale –

1. Emerging   2. Developing   3. Proficient   4. Extending

Students can score a 0 for not attempting to answer questions and must score at least 1 to graduate. If desired, students will be allowed to rewrite the GNA two times over their high school years (3 total attempts).

GLA 10 (Note, information on GLA 12 is not yet published)

RHS GRADE 10s WILL WRITE THE GLA on APRIL 13-14 - CHECK POSTED SCHEDULES FOR DATE AND TIME.

Literacy is the ability to critically analyze and make meaning from diverse texts and to communicate and express oneself in a variety of modes and for a variety of purposes in relevant contexts. 

Students will demonstrate their learning through two key tasks on the Grade 10 Graduation Literacy Assessment: Analyzing and Making Meaning from Texts (Comprehend) and Communicating Understanding of Texts/Making Personal Connections (Communicate). For example, in Part A, after responding to a number of texts related to the essential question, students will respond to a writing prompt, such as, “To what extent do humans have control over the natural world?” Students will be asked to communicate their depth of insight into, or understanding of, the topic. They will support their argument with reference to the texts in the section and may also draw upon their own experiences and knowledge
