Beginning in the 2019/2020 school year, students will write provincial Literacy Assessments in Grade 10 and Grade 12. Unlike the old Provincial exams, these assessments are not attached to English courses, and do not affect a student’s English mark. 

The Literacy assessment measures literacy (reading and writing skills) across the curriculum. Like the Numeracy exam, it will be marked on a 4-point proficiency scale. 

More details are forthcoming, as the Province outlines plans for the Literacy assessment.
