Junior Cycle CBA Calendars 2022 - 2023

Please see the attached calendar of CBAs (Classroom Based Assessments) for 2nd and 3rd Years.

All students complete two CBAs in each subject, one in 2nd Year and one in 3rd Year. These can be referred to as 'CBA1' and 'CBA2' respectively.

CBAs are undertaken at a common level for all students.

Classroom Based Assessments (CBAs) are one part of how students' learning is assessed in the new Junior Cycle, alongside the State Examinations in June of Third Year and the variety of assessment practices that students and their teachers make use of in school over the course of the three years.

How are CBAs assessed?

When complete, CBAs are awarded Grade Descriptors by students' subject teachers and moderated with other teachers of the same subject at a Subject Learning and Assessment Review (SLAR) meeting before deciding on a final Grade Descriptor. A student's teacher assigns a Grade Descriptor based on Features of Quality that are outlined in the subject's specification.

The Grade Descriptors are: Exceptional; Above Expectations; In Line with Expectations; Yet to Meet Expectations.

These Grade Descriptors are recorded and printed on the JCPA (Junior Cycle Profile of Achievement) certificate along with their State Examination results at the end of 3rd year.
