This week, third year Business Studies students began work on their Classroom Based Assessment. The process will take three weeks. As more subjects change to the new Junior Cycle, students will spend more time working on Classroom Based Assessments, also known as CBAs. CBAs form an essential part of assessment in the new Junior Cycle. The timeframe for these to completed is set by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment, and cannot be changed. While good attendance is always important, students should avoid missing classes while working on Classroom Based Assessment in any subject. Best of luck to all involved!
