Testing and grades measure a student's progress. State, district, teacher look at how a student is doing in different ways.
- The elementary report card communicates student learning. The district’s system makes sure that report cards are consistent within the district. A key feature of the report card is that students are graded separately on life skills like effort and cooperation from what they learn in academic subjects like math and writing.
- In Lake Washington School District, information about student learning and the performance of the school district is gathered from a variety of sources, including district and state assessments, and from the classroom teacher. Each piece provides a “snapshot” of how well a child is doing.
- Every spring, the state tests all students in grades 3-8 and 10 to make sure their learning is on track. The results from this testing are important to us all.
