    Assessment is an important part of our learning at Hilson.  Instruction, assessment and evaluation in today’s classrooms support multiple learning goals. Students need to learn more than facts – they must acquire 21st century skills such as critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.
     
    The OCDSB has created a fantastic guide for parents which offers clear, meaningful information about assessment, evaluation and reporting.  Please click on the link below to learn more about assessment and evaluation in the OCDSB.  This guide will also 
    provide you with tips on how to communicate with your child and their teachers and
    answers some of the most common questions you may have regarding your child’s education.
