Assessment of student learning is on-going and consists of multiple options. Pre-tests in literary analysis, grammar and persuasive writing establish a baseline against which performance on the post assessment may be compared. Pre-assessments also serve as an aid in instructional planning. Mid year tests in literary analysis and writing provide insight into
student achievement and guides instruction for the second half of
the year. Daily discussions, response journals, oral presentations, research projects, and writing samples are evaluated by both the teacher and the student using informal and formal approaches. Achievement on the post tests in writing, literay analysis and reading comprehension are measured against benchmarks set for each grade.
The Connecticut Mastery tests also assess students in reading and writing. Student achievement in language arts is reflected on the regular report card.
