Earlier this week Alberta Education announced that diploma exams are expected to be administered for the rest of the 2021-2022 school year (April, June and August 2022).
As announced in late October, the weighting of diploma exams will be temporarily reduced to 10 per cent for the 2021-2022 school year only. Minister LaGrange has indicated this is due to the learning disruptions caused by the pandemic.
To help students feel more prepared for writing diploma exams, Alberta Education has made a number of resources available at: https://www.alberta.ca/k-12-provincial-assessment.aspx
Students seeking support with preparing for diploma exams or post-secondary planning can also contact the Career Counsellor at their school.
