Foundation Skills Assessment

Students in Grade 4 will be completing the Foundation Skills Assessments starting the week of January 20th. The Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) is a set of reading, writing and numeracy tests administered each winter to BC students in grades 4 and 7. FSA provides a “snapshot” of how well BC students are attaining the foundation skills of reading, writing and numeracy. You can help your child prepare for the assessments by encouraging him/her to do his/her best and by ensuring he/she is at school by 8:30 a.m. at the latest during the assessment period. Parents are encouraged to visit the Ministry website for more information regarding FSA: http://www.bced.gov.bc.ca/assessment/fsa/info/welcome.htm.
