Assessment and progression of the child
A formal review is an integral part of each project and is essential for the process of evaluation. All projects must culminate in a review of learning, a piece of work that others can see which charts the learning that has taken place. The presentation of the project, to ones peers, or a wider circle, is an important element of the process. This review values the efforts made through the accomplishment of the project.
The way the children work in a project gives good opportunities for self-evaluation, both spontaneous and solicited. Self-evaluation leads us to new ways of learning and allows us to evaluate our own strengths and weaknesses and choosing our input, and our chosen role, in the light of these discoveries.
The teacher also use the project process to better evaluate the student’s knowledge and skills base, by observing them involved in complex tasks. It is the perfect opportunity for formative assessment.
Correction and challenge of the child’s academic skills happens weekly, on a routine basis, to ensure that all the children achieve the necessary academic objectives.
The parents are informed of their child’s academic and social progress through 3 meetings with the teacher and the child per year. The child’s work is presented and their academic skills are evaluated in line with the school’s objectives.
