System of Assessment

In place of the traditional grading system, Family School uses an alternative method of assessment that includes:

  • Student Profile: Teacher and parent observations/reports about student’s learning processes.  Used to set goals and guide instruction.
  • Self Assessment: Student-developed portfolio and presentation about themselves as learners.  Emphasis on literacy and math progress. 
  • Performance Portfolio: Completed toward end of the year as a final assessment.  Students and parents design, create, and show projects to demonstrate academic gains for the year.
