Foundation Skills Assessment

September 16, 2019: Foundation Skills Assessment  (FSA) is a set of reading, writing and numeracy assessments of student learning in Grades 4 and 7.

These provincial assessments are administered in the fall and provide a ‘snapshot’ of how well BC students are doing in key foundational areas of learning. They also play a role in helping plan for student success.

We invited you to read the information brochure below for parents, and a Letter from our Superintendent of New Westminster Schools:
