[History 324: Homework & Handouts]

A Learning and Evaluation Situation (L.E.S.) is a set of complex tasks and learning activities rooted in a context which is linked to a problem or issue. A L.E.S. contributes to the development of subject-specific competencies, draws on various cross-curricular competencies and is contextualized in the broad areas of learning. The completed situational problem allows the teacher to assess specific learning competencies.
