Junior Cycle CBA's

'Dear Parent,

I hope you are all well.

I am writing to you to let you know that the Second Year and Third Year Classroom Based Assessment (CBA) Calendars have been published. This calendar is available below and a copy has been issued to all students digitally and hard copies have been put up around the school.

Usually, in Second and Third Year, students undertake a CBA in each subject, except Gaeilge, which will be assessed in Third Year only. However, this year, the Department of Education released new guidelines for Classroom Based Assessments due to the impact of Covid-19. In some subjects, students only need to complete one CBA and these were completed last year. As a result, the CBA timetable for this year's Third Years is reduced and there will be no Assessment Tasks. This only affects current Third Years.

CBAs provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate their understanding and skills of the curriculum in a way that differs from a formal examination. The CBAs will take place during class time within the time allocated for each subject. This information can be found on the calendar attached.

CBAs will be reported on in the Junior Cycle Profile of Achievement (JCPA) using the following descriptors: Exceptional, Above Expectations, In Line With Expectations & Yet to Meet Expectations.
