Karl Samuda, Minister without portfolio with responsibility for Education
Schools will next week receive the results of the Primary Exit Profile (PEP) exams recently sat by Grade Six students.
The tests took place in February, March and April.
Karl Samuda, Minister without portfolio with responsibility for Education, announced at a media briefing Tuesday morning that the ministry is in the final stages of preparing the results for release.
Mr. Samuda said students and parents will be provided with a detailed report on their performance on the placement exam instead of being given percentages.
He said, while this represents a shift from the Grade Six Achievement Test, PEP scores will be reported using a scale, allowing for more accurate reporting.
This student summary report will include the students' scores, placement, as well as an interpretation of the scores.
Parents will receive the first two pages of the report next week.
