Our First Assessment: A Small Step on a Journey

With this week comes out first assessment.  It will take place on learning styles.  Students will receive assessment basics Monday and should work well each night in completing the three parts.
Parents/ Guardians can play a role in this process.  Encouraging your students/ emerging scholars to complete a portion each night would be effective.  For example, Parts I and II are due on Thursday.  Students will receive them on Monday and Tuesday.  Ensuring that students work on these parts in an incremental fashion on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights will help guarantee our students the chance to do their best.  Part III of the Assessment will be the more challenging portion of the Assessment and this is due on Thursday, September 19.  Encouraging students to submit rough drafts of their work through "sloppy copies" or through digital means are ways in which students can find success on the third part of the assessment.  There will be little chance of our students finding success if they are not encouraged to see how process and product go together.  The process of assembling quality work products is what enables them to be realized.  For students, to fully understand this approach is where success will lie in this assessment.
A digital copy of the assessment basics can be found here.  Please consider this to be a helpful tool to guide student success on this task.

If I can be of any further assistance or help, please do not hesitate to contact me.
All best.
Mr. Kannan
