2. Overview

2.1 Cycles

At Kativik Ilisarniliriniq, we have 6 grade levels in secondary; 3 levels in Cycle 1 and 3 levels in Cycle 2.

Kativik secondary level 1.0 is intended to give our second language students more time to experience science concepts and practices.

2.2 Science Rotations

2.3 Competency Evaluation

  • QEP Competency 1: Seek answers or solutions to scientific or technological problems
    The first competency focuses on the assimilation of concepts and strategies using a hands-on approach (experiments and activities in the Lab)
  • QEP Competency 2:  Makes the most of knowledge of science and technology
    This competency requires that students put an issue in context, identify the related scientific and technological principles and form an opinion (resolving theoretical problems)

KI Science programs follow Competencies 1 and 2 using the same criteria as the Quebec Education Program (QEP) **see weighting percentages in each cycle

One difference at Kativik from the Quebec Education Program (QEP):

  • Essential Knowledge (replaces QEP Competency 3 Communicates in the languages used in science and technology) – all other evaluation options – additional questions, exercise sheets, quizzes, homework, etc.
