ATTENTION POTENTIAL SCIENCE GRADUATES H2005  

COMPREHENSIVE ASSESSMENT IN SCIENCE
(Épreuve synthèse de programme)

In order to receive your Cégep Science diploma, you must be able to show that you have mastered all the competencies or skills that the Science Program sets out. You must also show that you can make appropriate applications and connections among them. In some colleges, this final phase of the Program has been tested by a comprehensive exam. In other colleges, there are specific assignments which students must complete. However the college does it, this recorded mastery of key objectives is called the student's comprehensive assessment or épreuve synthèse de programme (ESP).

The Vanier College comprehensive assessment in science for students graduating in A2004-H2005 targets specific courses in which the objectives can be met in an interdisciplinary context and students' mastery can be measured. It will be your responsibility to ensure that you not only take the required number of these courses, but also pass the targeted assignments in each. Most of these assignments are part of the course evaluation but sometimes you will be doing an optional assignment.

The teachers in all the courses listed below are sent a special grade report sheet on which they are asked to record whether students have fulfilled the criteria for the ESP module, assignment, research project or set of problems that has been designated as part of the Science ESP. Your teachers, therefore, will be doing their part, but it is also up to you to ensure that you are enrolled in the appropriate courses and passing the ESP components in them.

The courses you may use for your ESP credits are as follows:
TWO (2) FROM THE FOLLOWING GENERAL EDUCATION COURSES
English 603-HSD
French 602-HSB or 602-HSC or 602-HSD
Humanities 345-HSA
