Students must qualify in order to receive special writing accommodations for a diploma exam.
Since CBe-learn is an online school with a diverse population of students, it is not always evident which students need special writing accommodations and/or for what course subject. We need you, the student, to bring your exam accommodation needs to our attention!
- Are you an ESL student?
- Did you arrive to Canada from another country?
- Do you have an IPP?
- Do you have a chronic medical condition(s) or learning disability?
- Do you have an acute medical condition or illness?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then you may qualify to receive accommodations. Please notify and explain to your teacher within the first week of accessing your online course that you may require accommodations. It is important that you start this dialogue with your teacher.
Upon school approval, your teacher will provide a CBe-learn Test Centre letter of accommodation to you. You are required to bring this letter to the CBe-learn Test Centre as evidence of your accommodations. Students must use the accommodations while completing assessments online or onsite in order for Alberta Education to approve the use of the accommodation on your diploma exam.
To ensure you receive special writing accommodations, please identify yourself to your CBe-learn teacher early in the semester.
If you attend another CBE school, you may be given an accommodation letter from them. This needs to be confirmed through your community school, and you need to bring this letter in when you write an exam.
If you have not recieved a letter from CBe-learn or from your community High School, please let your teacher know as soon as possible.
