CURRICULUM and INSTRUCTION
Early Learning Program Information
Assessments are a very important aspect of learning. They enhance student, parent and teacher understanding of student learning, show evidence of progress, identify students who may need additional enrichment or intervention supports, and guide instruction toward course material mastery and personal growth.
Information provided by assessments provide descriptive and timely feedback that provides a means to monitor progress, evaluate instruction, and engage students in both their own academic and personal learning.
Forest Hills believes in a balanced assessment approach that blends assessments from local, state and national perspectives and:
begins with establishing clear goals and monitoring progress toward those goals along the way
guides student learning and maximizes achievement for all students
provides data with the intent of improving, measuring, and maximizing student growth
identifies what students already know and what they need to learn
