Median of "0" on Grade 7 & 8 Term 2 Report Cards

In cases where the majority of marks for a grade 7 or 8 subject/strand are "I", we have seen a "0" appear as the median. Is there an action we should take to ensure the Report Card accurately reflects the median mark?

Thank you

Hello Jason,

 

There is no change required on your part. Since there are no marks for "I", it is expected that "0" appears as the median.

Lise, can you confirm if majority of the marks are I, however some marks are present that a median will not be calculated or will be 0 for that subject?

@campbeti I confirm that if more than half of the students earn a mark of "I", we treat them as zeros, so that mark will be considered the median for the subject.
