Assessment

Please view the pop-down menu for assessment related items.  Included in this section are:

  • a scope and sequence chart for language arts kindergarten to grade 7  from the 2006 IRP
  • rubrics for DART assessments (grades 3 to7)
  • rubrics for EPRA (Early Primary Reading Assessment; also known as Baby DART)
  • and student friendly, genre-specific rubrics to assess student writing
  • The Island Reading Assessment offers choice of text and open-ended questions in an effort to know more about our learners

Research is consistently clear.  In classrooms where the six strategies of formative assessment are part of daily assessment routines, children are engaged, motivated and taking ownership of their learning.  Please give careful consideration to the use of these strategies as part of your assessment repertorie.
