The assessment is based on classroom observation. Daily work of every student is recorded and the observation is helps in assessing the student’s level of progress. It allows teachers to plan for the achievement of the next milestones by focusing on the area of learning and assigning a learning goal or assessment.
At Mastery International School observation is the heart of practice. Observing the child’s activities, interactions, interests at school and at home, teachers are able to gauge student’s needs, interests, skills and prior knowledge. Children are involved in discussing their activities and how they feel about them from the beginning of their time in the setting. Teachers, through discussion and observation, make detailed assessments of each child’s progress, keeping careful records that build a comprehensive picture over the course of the year. Many of these records include sample work and photographs, which are shared with parents.
To understand a student’s strengths and weaknesses, academic advancement and overall development, the teachers identify the developmental stage and work at strengthening the educational journey.
Teachers in collaboration with the academic team design ways to strengthen learning by providing a rich stimulating environment that appeals to the student’s overall talents and interests. Individual Development Plan give children opportunities to play and learn happily in ways that support, strengthen and deepen their current learning and development.
