Student data and performance indicators

Yukon Foundation Skills Assessment

The Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) is a set of reading, writing and numeracy tests we administer each year to students in grades 4 and 7. In 2017-18, we re-designed the FSA with new content, scoring, and timing during the year.

The FSA is a valuable indicator of where individual students might have challenges in reading, writing and numeracy and can be used to help plan their education. It also provides a snapshot of how our education system is meeting the needs of students in these key areas.

The FSA scoring for both grade 4 & 7 is as follows:

  • Extending: Demonstrates an in-depth understanding
  • On Track: Demonstrates a clear understanding
  • Emerging: Demonstrates limited understanding
  • Unknown: Did not participate
