Assessment & Reporting
"In an effective classroom students should not only know what they are doing, they should also know why and how." H. Wong
Assessment and reporting are integral parts of the teaching and learning process. Accurate and comprehensive assessment and reporting of student performance assists in establishing open communication, guides teacher planning and student learning in developing future direction and helps to identify areas of exemplary performance as well as those areas in need of support.
Students are involved in their learning by setting goals based on feedback from pre and post-assessments. Teachers work with students to establish learning goals and steps required to achieve them.
Parents are provided with written reports twice per year as well as parent/teacher conversations at the beginning of each year and student-led conferences mid-year. Outside of these formal reporting times, teachers, parents, and students meet regularly to review learning goals.
