Upon registering, students are given an entrance exam that enables us to place them in one of our six classrooms depending on their competency in Reading, Language Arts & Mathematics. We offer both advanced and remedial multi-age combination classrooms in order to challenge all students at their level of proficiency.
At the beginning of the school year, students are assessed using a California Standards based Reading Language Arts & Mathematics exam. This exam contains the fundamental skills and knowledge that students should know at the end of the year. Additionally, we have added valuable components such as telling time for our younger students and civics & geography for our older students. After each semester, students are retested with practice exams so that teachers can monitor progress and reteach any necessary lessons.
This type of formal norm-based assessment helps our instructors evaluate what parts of their instruction are more successful than others and what parts need to be honed in order to better reach our students. As a result of engaging in such ongoing assessment, our team can continually improve our offerings to students here at Strive.
Reasons for Assessing:
By assessing our students with both of these tools, we not only ensure that our instructors stay on top of each student’s academic needs and progress, but we also can honor all of the young people that come to our campus by getting to know and embrace each child as an individual with their own unique gifts. In this way, all of us at here at Strive are better able to help guide our young people along as they make their way toward accomplishing their goals and reaching their highest potential.
