What Do your Grades and Levels Mean?

"I Am an Expert." I Understand the skill/concept well, and can explain or teach it to others.

Level 3: Meets Provincial Expectations  (At the Provincial Standard.)
"I am a Practitioner." I Understand the skill/concept, but sometimes I make minor errors, and need help.

Level 2: Approaching Provincial Expectations
"I am an Apprentice." I Am beginning to Understand the skill/concept, but I need someone to help me through it.

Level 1: In the Early Stages of Understanding
"I Am a Novice." I Am starting to Learn this skill/concept, and I don't understand it yet. 

Students will be evaluated using a variety of assessment tools and methods. These will include Conversations, Observations, and Products.
