Assessment Time

Students will take a few assessments this week. The results will help educators decide what and how to teach in the days ahead. Specifically we'll be able to see who is catching on with the current program priorities and efforts and who needs more or different to make better progress.

While we assess student effort, engagement, and learning daily in all kinds of ways, it is helpful to have a few assessments that give us a broader view of the whole class.

I'll introduce students to the best strategy to do well on this test, and then let them get started. I'll share the results of these online tests with students once they complete the tests too. These tests will also inform the completion of student progress reports. Onward.
