Achievement and SIP


The school follows the guidelines set out in the OCDSB Policy and Procedures for student assessment and evaluation (PR.584.CUR), available on the OCDSB website. Student achievement is based on the ‘big ideas’ and overall expectations laid out in the Provincial Curriculum documents for each subject area and grade.

Viscount Alexander P.S. is committed to academic excellence. We measure student performance in a variety of ways including: ongoing teacher observation, checklists, anecdotal records, formal and informal assessments and evaluations, conferencing with individual students, ongoing communication with parents, student portfolios, oral and written presentations, peer and self-evaluation, group discussions. Our senior kindergarten teachers use the Early Literacy Observation Tool (ELOT) to assess the literacy development of their students. Primary students’ reading skills are assessed using the PM Benchmarks and junior students using the CASI (i.e. Comprehension Attitudes Strategies Interests). Students participate in the EQAO Language and Mathematics testing at the grade 3 and 6 level. 

We believe it’s important to recognize student effort and achievement in the areas of academics, citizenship and extra-curricular activities. Success, however large or small, is recognized routinely in our classrooms. Students are encouraged to model positive leadership, and are congratulated regularly. At the end of each year, awards and trophies are presented to students for a wide range of academic and personal successes.
