Nova Scotia administers the following assessments:
- Nova Scotia Assessment: Reading, Writing, and Mathematics in Grade 6 (RWM6)
- Nova Scotia Assessment: Literacy and Mathematics in Grade 3 (LM3)
- Nova Scotia Assessment: Reading, Writing, and Mathematics in Grade 8 (RWM8)
For the list of Nova Scotia Assessments and Nova Scotia Examinations and administration dates, please see the “Assessment Schedule” section of the PLANS homepage (https://plans.ednet.ns.ca/).
- In 2021-2022, only outcomes that are identified as foundational in the Foundational Outcome documents (September 2020/grade 6; September 2021/grades 3 and 8) and measurable on large scale assessments will be included on Nova Scotia Assessments. To reflect this change, the Mathematics portion of the Reading, Writing, and Mathematics/Mathématiques in Grade 8 has been reduced to 60-minute sessions.
