Mark Calculations

Two formal report cards are issued throughout the year. Each term, computer-generated student averages are printed at the bottom of each report card. This is an overall, weighted average of all core courses.

The following chart illustrates how the student averages are calculated:

Final Exams

In May and June, Grade 9 students will write Alberta Provincial Achievement Tests in all academic core subjects (Math, Science, Social Studies and Language Arts). At these times, Grade 7 and 8 students will write school-based final exams in the same academic core subjects. Our Gator School Council and staff believe that the writing of final exams assesses cumulative competence over the year in a given subject and also prepares students for this important skill needed in the senior high school years. Consequently, all Lorne Akins students write all final exams.


To achieve "honours" students must:
1. Have an average of 80% in their four core subjects.
2. Have an effort score of 1 or 2 in their options. One three will negate their honours attempt.
