Clarkson S.S. Assessment & Evaluation Policy


Students are expected to demonstrate HONESTY and integrity and submit assessments that are reflective of their own work. Cheating is defined as completing an assessment in a dishonest way through improper access to the answers. Examples include, but are not limited to; using another student’s work as your own, using an unauthorized reference sheet during an assessment, receiving / sending an electronic message to another student with test questions / answers, etc.

In order to ensure that all assessments are free from cheating,

Students will:

  • review school policy with regards to academic honesty

  • submit their own work for evaluation to show evidence of skill and knowledge

  • use only teacher approved materials during an evaluation

  • demonstrate the qualities of good character and good intention (honesty, caring, respectful, responsibility,) when preparing evidence of their learning.

If a student cheats on an assessment,

Students may be:

  • required to complete an alternate evaluation under direct supervision in a timely manner

  • required to write a reflective piece which demonstrates an understanding of the character attribute of honesty.

  • assigned a mark deduction

  • referred to a vice-principal

  • assigned a zero.

Students are expected to demonstrate HONESTY and use proper citations and referencing when completing assessments.

Plagiarism is defined as the unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work. Examples include, but are not limited to; copying another’s project (portions or whole) and paraphrasing parts of a book or article without reference or citation.

In order to ensure that all assessments are free from plagiarism,

Students will:

  • Be required to complete a workshop in correct documentation

  • produce their own work

  • give credit through appropriate citations and referencing when quoting or paraphrasing the work of others

  • be diligent in maintaining and protecting their own work

  • seek clarification or assistance from teachers or other available resources

If an assessment is plagiarized,

Students may be:

  • required to rewrite or resubmit all or parts of the assignment

  • referred for remedial lessons on proper citation and references

  • required to do a reflection on the character attribute of honesty

  • referred to a vice-principal

  • required to sign a contract with the administration and teacher about commitment to academic honesty

  • assigned a zero.

LATE ASSIGNMENTS – assignments submitted after the due date and before the absolute deadline.
Students are expected to demonstrate RESPONSIBILITY and submit all assessments by the established due date. Students are responsible for providing evidence of their achievement of the overall course expectations within the time frame specified by the teacher and in a form approved by the teacher. There are consequences for not completing assignments for evaluation or for submitting those assignments late.
In order to ensure that all evaluations are submitted by the established due date,

Students will:

  • record due dates in personal organizers
