Assessment of learning
The assessment of learning aims to direct and encourage studying and develop the pupil’s self-assessment abilities. The assessment of learning is based on the objectives and descriptions of good learning achievements defined in the curriculum.
The pupil’s learning, schoolwork and behaviour are assessed in varying ways while taking the pupil’s individual objectives into account.
Assessment during the school year
The pupils receive daily assessments during the school year as a part of teaching and schoolwork. The feedback is qualitative and descriptive, and its objective is to support each pupil’s objectives.
The pupil will understand and see the practical grounds for assessment and the different assessment methods, as well as the ways in which they can influence their own learning and progress.
Assessment at the end of the school year
Pupils receive an annual report at the end of the school year. The report assesses, verbally or numerically, the pupil’s achievement of their objectives in different subjects.
- The reports for grades 1 and 2 exclusively use verbal assessment, which focuses on the pupil’s progress and general studying and working skills.
- In grades 3–7, the assessments can be verbal, numerical, or a combination of both.
- In grades 8–9, assessments are always numerical.
- In the 9th grade, the pupils will apply for further education with their comprehensive school certificates.
