Mark Calculations

Three formal report cards are issued at Lorne Akins 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 and complementary courses, giving a good snapshot of each student's progress. 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.
