What is the FSA?
The Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) is a required set of reading, writing, and numeracy assessments administered to BC students every year in Grades 4 and 7. They are the first two of four provincial assessments: Grade 4 FSA, Grade 7 FSA, and the graduation assessments in Literacy and Numeracy.
What is the purpose of the FSA?
The FSA provides a “snapshot” of how well BC students are doing in key foundational areas. The results help answer important questions, such as:
- Are all students learning vital skills they will need in school and in life?
- Is student achievement improving over time?
- Are there any trends in student performance at the school, district, or provincial levels?
- Along with classroom assessment information, the FSA provides valuable information to parents on how their child is performing in reading, writing, and numeracy.
Grade 7 students at Dr. Kearney will start writing the FSA between October 1 and November 9. Parents will receive their student’s results after the assessments are scored in mid-November.
