dc.description.abstract This study aimed to better understand the unintended consequences of the Nova Scotia Examination: English 10 for students and teachers. Two classrooms were involved in this multisite case study. Data was gathered through interviews with teachers and students, classroom observation, and document review. The study found that the Examination’s limited scope and ambiguous questions threatened student self-efficacy going into the Examination. Document review revealed potential construct underrepresentation within the larger program due to a lack of compensation for constructs not represented on the Examination. Other unintended consequences included influence on students’ perceptions of literacy and a reduction in teacher morale. Recommendations include the review of multiple-choice questions, increased communication about use of results, and the consideration of teacher-created summative assessment. en_US
