Grades and Pacing

New K-9 Grading System and Additional Resources

At the beginning of this school year, the province adopted a 4 point rubric system for the evaluation of K-9 students across Saskatchewan.


As an accredited Saskatchewan school, the DLC will also be changing from the 5 point system to the new 4 point system. With this shift, the province hopes to create more accurate and consistent evaluation of student progress and growth. More details and a breakdown of the new grading system can be found here.



Before the change occurred, many of our DLC materials were printed and shipped with the 5 point rubric, so you may notice that the rubrics we are using this year are different from those in your resources.
More information on K-9 Assessment and Evaluation can be found in each course page. To access this information:

  • Log in to your DLCgo account
  • Click into your course
  • Below the course introduction you will see the heading ‘Course Information’
  • Under that, click on Assessment and Evaluation
  • Here you will find more information on what to submit and how to interpret your teacher’s feedback


If you have any questions or concerns regarding rubrics or grading, please email your DLC teacher or call (306) 252-1000.
