Tuesday, May 29th was the first day of the Cumulative Assessment Period, also known as CAP, for Immaculate Heart High School.
CAP has replaced the traditional final exam period, and it is designed to allow teachers the flexibility they need to create authentic assessments for their students. While some classes will still have objective tests and timed writing responses, other classes will run experiments, present the findings of a research project, or work collaboratively to chart their knowledge of the discipline.
Immaculate Heart High School wish all its students the best of luck as they prepare to undertake the rest of this week’s assessments. Praying that these efforts are rewarded, and that they are able to find space to rest and reflect amidst the end-of-year stresses.
