Students enrolling in Skill Builders for English language arts and mathematics will find an initial academic assessment of great benefit to their program. This is an optional educational assessment of skills (reading, comprehension, spelling, written expression, editing, mathematics – all in English only).
The results of the educational assessment are used by the teachers to maximize the student’s summer learning. Parents receive a graph of their child’s results, showing a comparison to where they should be for their grade level. They also receive an outline of the subtests used.
Assessments for summer school take place in May or June, but can be offered later for those registering during the summer. If recent academic testing has occurred elsewhere and the results can be shared with us, we can use this information in place of our summer assessment to design the student’s individualized summer program.
