LANGUAGE CHALLENGE EXAM INFORMATION 2020-2021
The purpose of Language Challenge is to permit students to obtain credit for Grade 11 or 12 courses when they have already acquired the appropriate learning elsewhere. Challenge provides students with an opportunity to demonstrate that they have satisfied the learning outcomes of a course in the graduation program and to enable them to earn credits without taking the course. It is anticipated that Challenge will be necessary and appropriate in only exception circumstances.
The process of Challenge is meant to be rigorous, maintaining the integrity of the curriculum and the standards of a quality education. It is intended for students of exceptional ability or those who have had exceptional opportunities for learning through some special circumstances.
Challenge is not a way for students to improve their course marks, nor a replacement for the valuable experience of learning in a classroom setting.
