Knowledge plus insight is STRENGTH
ASSESSMENT
KPIS uses standards-based grading to measure our students’ mastery of the curriculum standards, or how well students understand the material in class. Assessment, like instruction, is an ongoing process. Whether it be informal or formal, formative or summative, teachers are constantly evaluating their students. Teachers aim to report some form of assessment approximately every five contact hours with students This can include anything from an ungraded formative observation based on a discussion, to a unit final assessment. Ongoing assessment of students in Kindergarten and a focus on what is important for each child's learning and development through continuous observations are the keys to planning appropriate learning experiences and helping all students succeed. The assessment includes collecting facts and observing the child during everyday play periods, lessons and activities. In Elementary and Middle school, students are assessed throughout the academic year using a variety of tools to evaluate and document progress and academic readiness. Teachers use both formative and summative assessment methods which include classroom observations, conferencing, weekly quizzes, exit tickets, class projects and end of unit assessments. Standards-based grading enables teachers to observe the outcome of assessments and effectively modify instruction to suit the needs of every individual student. In High school, students receive a final A-F grade in each class. This grade is calculated by PowerSchool based on an average of all top-level standards assessed during the term. High school grade point averages are calculated as a weighted (by number of credits) average of the semester grades from each class. Advanced Placement course grades are awarded an extra grade point for these calculations. Assessment may come in many forms. At KPIS we use assessments to ensure every student is learning and progressing and how we can adapt our teaching methods to match each students’ learning process.
