New Junior Certificate Assessment

 

 

Assessment at junior cycle places the student at the centre of the learning process and allows for new ways of learning and a broader range of skills to be assessed. 

As part of their classroom work, students engage in assessment activities that can be either formative or summative in nature. Teachers assess as part of their daily practice by observing and listening as students carry out tasks, by looking at what they write or make and by considering how they respond to, frame and ask questions.  Teachers use this assessment information to help students plan the next steps in their learning. Periodically this assessment will be in more structured, formalised settings where teachers will need to obtain a snapshot of the students’ progress in order to make decisions on future planning and to report on progress. This may involve the students in doing projects, investigations, case studies and/or tests and may occur at defined points in the school calendar
