Assessment And Reporting
Assessment in Early Childhood is conducted through observations, and guided by developmental benchmarks. Teachers regularly assess student progress by:
Identifying what and how the student is thinking and learning;
Analyzing the achievements of the student;
Setting goals for learning and reflecting on strengths and weaknesses.
Parent teacher conferences are held twice a year, first in the fall and then again in the spring. Conferences are valuable moments for parents to meet with their child’s teachers. This is also an opportunity for teachers to share strengths and goals and for parents to gain an understanding of how best they can support learning in both the academic and social domains.
In January and June, families receive official student report documents which provide feedback on progress of grade level standards, as well as on students’ attitudes to learning and social skills.
Parents will also be able to monitor their child’s progress regularly in all areas of their learning through Seesaw, a digital portfolio platform.
