BC NUMERACY ASSESSMENT
What is Numeracy Assessment?
The Grade 10 Numeracy Assessment focuses on the application of mathematical concepts learned across multiple subjects from kindergarten to Grade 10. It requires students to solve problems by using five numeracy processes (different ways of thinking and working): interpret, apply, solve, analyze, and communicate. The numeracy processes are described in the per-assessment activities and in the specifications. (BC's New Curriculum, 2019)
The Grade 10 Numeracy Assessment is delivered online in three sections
Students answer 24 questions centered on four different tasks (situations) completed online
Questions are scored by a computer.
2. Student-choice section
Students choose two of four available questions and complete two written-response questions on paper. These questions are based on tasks the student will have completed earlier in the common section. Students present detailed solutions to a problem using all the numeracy processes and support their thinking with explanations and assumptions.
Questions are marked by B.C. educators using a rubric.
These questions ask students to reflect on their experience after they have completed the previous sections. The process of reflection is part of their learning.
Questions are not scored.
