Assessment is based on both formative and major assignment evaluation. Teachers use a variety of assessment and evaluation strategies including peer and self-assessments, tests, essays, independent study or group projects, oral presentations, portfolios, skills checklists, labs, and examinations. Seventy percent of the grade is based on assessment and evaluation conducted throughout the course, and 30% of the grade is based on a final major assignment evaluation aimed at determining achievement of course expectations. The final evaluation includes a required formal written examination and optional evaluations in the form of a performance, essay, oral presentation, or other evaluations suitable to the course.

Attendance at evaluation sessions is compulsory. Students should not make any other plans during the formal evaluation schedule from April to June. Students who miss a final evaluation will receive zero for the evaluation unless the absence is verified and legitimate. In order for the absence to be considered legitimate, the student must have visited his family doctor, the hospital emergency ward, or the SAC Health Centre, and provide the Assistant Headmaster, Academics with a medical certificate stating the exact date(s) the student was seen for treatment. For any other absence to be considered legitimate, approval of the exceptional circumstance must be given by the Assistant Headmaster, Academics or his designate. When the evaluation is deemed to be required to be completed, it must be done in an expedient manner.
