Assessment

 

AssessmentAlthough we feel that self-reflection is the most productive form of assessment, GECS students are assessed in a variety of other ways.

Teacher Observation/ Student Work:
On a day to day basis, the parents monitor student progress through assignments. On a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis, depending on studentís age and program, the credentialed teacher interviews students and parents about progress on assignments. Teachers often give tests or quizzes on material at this time. The credentialed teacher checks student work, and creates a monthly report that documents student progress through state standards and other elective content.

AssessmentMonthly Learning Record:
GECS creates a monthly report to document studentsí progress through the California State Standards and other personally selected benchmarks. Click here for more information.

Standards Based Benchmarks/Report Cards:
In addition to daily/weekly/monthly reviews of student work, GECS students in grades K-12 are assessed using benchmarks for each of their core courses. The studentís credentialed teacher uses these benchmarks, as well as review of studentís daily work assignments, to assess student progress and assign credits on student semester report cards.

In Grades 9-12, students receive electronically generated report cards and official transcripts as generated by their credentialed teacher.

In grades K-6, the grade level benchmarks are used to assess student achievement of grade level standards, and double as a semester report card.

Grades 7-8 use grade level benchmarks for semester assessment in addition to a graded report card in subjects taken.
