Classroom Based Assessments

Classroom Based Assessments (CBAs) provide students with opportunities to demonstrate their learning and skills in ways not possible in a pen and paper examination, in particular their verbal communication and investigation skills.   CBAs will be undertaken in subjects and short courses and will be facilitated by the classroom teacher. They will be undertaken during a defined time period within normal class contact time adhering to a national timetable.  Students will complete one CBA in Second Year and one in Third Year in most subjects. 

​CBAs will be reported in the Junior Cycle Profile of Achievement using the following descriptors:

  • Exceptional
  • Above Expectations
  • In Line with Expectations
  • Yet to Meet Expectations
