Foundation Skills Assessment

...or is it?...

What is so bad about the FSA?

Due to COVID-19 students did not fully complete the last three months of the 2019-2020 school year and should not be tested on material they have not learned.

 

General Opposition:

  • impacts teaching and learning
  • is an unfair assessment
  • drains resources from public education
  • has a negative effect on students
  • discourages students rather than motivates them
  • does not help teachers teach but is a "system check" for the Ministry of Education
  • individual student needs are not addressed
