ASSESSMENT: Assessment is the process of checking what our students know and can do. This happens every day informally in the classroom as teachers observe how students do their assigned work. From time to time we do more formal assessments in the form of unit tests or projects. We also use standardized forms of assessment, which allow us to compare our student's knowledge against common standards or many other students in other schools and systems. This week the 8th graders will take part in a National Assessment. The lower grades will also be trying out a new online testing system called MAP, which we are pilot testing as a way of getting quick feedback to teachers on what areas need more focused instruction. These useful assessment tools help to verify how much our students are actually learning. With the excellent teachers we have, we should not be surprised when our students do extremely well on standardized tests, but it is always a reassuring good news when we see how well our students compare to others.
