The Department of Education is expanding its current review of assessment in the province’s K-12 schools. As that review is ongoing, a decision has been made to cancel public exams for the 2022-23 school year.
The public exam system as it existed pre-COVID 19 may no longer meet the educational needs of students. The Department is expanding its review of the current public exam system, with a view to creating an innovative, up-to-date system of evaluating high school students.
The Department of Education continues to support teachers in the evaluation and assessment of students, and thanks them for their commitment to high-quality learning.
