How do I find out how my child is progressing in the classroom?
At MIS, we focus on both summative assessment as well as formative assessment. In other words:
- Summative Assessment – Analysis focused on the cumulation of all skills/concepts/outcomes at the end of a lesson or unit.
- Formative Assessment – Analysis of student comprehension, learning needs, and academic progress during a lesson or unit, completed on an ongoing basis.
Are students receiving grades like those given in public school?
