Literacy Assessment

Provincial Graduation Literacy Assessment (GLA)

About the GLA

There are three unique assessments for the English, Francophone and French Immersion programs.* The specifications below provide a detailed description of the assessments and how literacy will be measured.

The Graduation Literacy Assessments (GLA) are under development and will be introduced in the 2019/20 school year (all Language Arts 12 examinations will continue until that time, and then be phased out in the process).

*Francophone and French Immersion students who wish to graduate with a Double Dogwood (both the British Columbia Certificate of Graduation and the Diplôme de fin d'études secondaires) will need to complete both the English Literacy Assessment plus the Évaluation de littératie – Français langue première (Francophone students) or the Évaluation de littératie – Français langue seconde – Immersion (Immersion students).
