A support document for the implementation of Growing Success: Assessment, Evaluation and Reporting in Ontario Schools, First Edition covering Grades 1 to 12 produced by the Eastern Ontario Catholic Curriculum Cooperative
To help educators across Ontario best see through this lens, the Eastern Ontario Catholic Curriculum Corporation has released its latest resource, Seeing Through the Eyes of Jesus: Growing Success for Students in Catholic Schools. Educators across Ontario have been working on how to best utilize collaborative inquiry using the Catholic Professional Learning Cycle. This new resource documents the processes outlined in Growing Success: Assessment, Evaluation and Reporting in Ontario Schools First Edition, 2010 and explains their importance through the filter of Gospel values. This resource responds to a range of educator wonderings and provides support for collaborative inquiry to deepen understanding of assessment and evaluation concepts implemented in Catholic schools. Here are just some of the ways Seeing Through the Eyes of Jesus encourages educators to reflect on such concepts:
• How do the Gospel values support the spirituality of assessment?
• What are the connections between assessment for, as and of learning? How do these processes align with evaluation and effective communication in order to uphold the dignity of each student?
• Where, in scripture, can we find models to inform educators of effective assessment instructional practices?
• How might existing Catholic resources reinforce our understanding of assessment, evaluation and reporting practices?
The resource also makes connections between the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations and Gospel values to support meaning-making for Catholic educators and includes scripture, student insight, as well as a locally-crafted song, What a Privilege, written by Eliane Guité. — from the EOCCC website http://www.eoccc.org/Content/Sidebar/FOV3-0001A0F4/S0023576E-002357F0?FormID=96&both&listview
