Evaluations of reading, math and number skills for students in Grades 3 and 4 of publicly funded schools in Manitoba. Students in English and Français programs are assessed in reading in Grade 3. Students in the French Immersion program are assessed in reading in Grades 3 and 4. Students in all programs are assessed in numeracy in Grade 3. Using select criteria provided by the Department of Education, these assessments are conducted by the teacher early in the school year in order to identify strengths and needs in reading and to guide the class curriculum for the school year.
