*Please note – Individual students may see a difference between classroom marks and provincial assessment proficiency scores as they are different measures of performance. Classroom assessments measure performance on all curricular outcomes in a course, whereas provincial assessments evaluate performance on the application of cross-curricular understandings in numeracy and literacy. Additionally, some students perform better on classroom measures while others do better on provincial assessments.
