Assessment Description

It is crucial to show students how to take ownership of their learning in order to create lifelong learners, encourage student autonomy, and foster student independence. To promote student success, the teacher encourages engagement through motivation and adjusts instruction based on information regarding learning needs and individual performance. Classwork, homework, progress charts, class records, formative assessments, effective questioning, and classroom observations are examples of ways to monitor and document information that is relevant and significant to student learning.
