Scorers and table leaders will be selected based on consideration of the following:

-- diversity of experience participating in previous provincial scoring sessions
-- priority will be given to teachers whose current assignment is at or adjacent to the grade level of the assessment.

Please note: We invite participants from diverse backgrounds and historically marginalized communities such as African Nova Scotian, Mi'kmaq, Persons with Disabilities, LGBTQ2+, and Newcomer communities, that feel comfortable in doing so, to self-identify in the “Additional Comments” section. This will allow us to ensure that we have a more equitable perspective to our assessment processes.
