The Graduation Numeracy Assessment (GNA) is a provincial assessment written in Grade 10, 11 or 12. It is a graduation requirement. The GNA is based on mathematical concepts learned across multiple subjects from Kindergarten to Grade 10, with an emphasis on K–9.
The GNA is not tied to a specific math course. Rather, it evaluates a student’s numeracy skills developed over the course of their education. Students will use five numeracy processes (different ways of thinking and working) to solve problems: interpret, apply, solve, analyze, and communicate.
Students can re-take the GNA to improve their proficiency score. Their best level achieved will be counted as their final result. Results will be reported using a proficiency scale.
Preparing for your GNA – Information and Resources
A Graduation Numeracy Assessment information brochure provides an overview of the GNA for students and parents.
To prepare for your GNA, use the Provincial Graduation Numeracy Assessment webpage provided by the BC Ministry of Education. There are pre-assessment activities for students to explore ahead of time and to help you prepare. These include a sample assessment and a series of videos that explain how to solve questions using the five numeracy processes.
