As an educator exercising your professional judgement, you should be prepared to
provide rationale for the decisions you make, if asked. The rationale may include
references to your professional knowledge (e.g., content and pedagogical) and training,
the classroom context, your prior professional experiences and existing policies and
curriculum documents. For example, if asked to change a mark on a report card, you
may quote sections from the Growing Success document along with making references
to the data that you have collected throughout the term to explain why in your
professional judgement you do not agree with changing the mark.
