Special Bulletin: Professional Judgement and the Provincial Report Card

Professional judgement is an important concept for educators. For the first time it is now defined in our new central agreement. Section C.2.5 of the Teacher/Occasional Teacher Central Agreement. It reads as follows:

“Professional Judgement” shall be defined as judgement that is informed by professional knowledge of curriculum expectations, context, evidence of learning, methods of instruction and assessment, and the criteria and standards that indicate success in student learning. In professional practice, judgement involves a purposeful and systematic thinking process that evolves in terms of accuracy and insight with ongoing reflection and self-correction.”
