  • Assessment

    At BIS-NY assessment is integral to teaching and learning, and is essential to creating personalised learning.

    We recognise that Assessment is essential for consistency within and across schools for tracking progress and for evaluating impact.

    • Our assessments recognise the strengths of the learner and areas for development –  one key way is to ensure that all learners are actively involved in assessment conversation with their teachers to celebrate their achievement
    • Our assessments draw on a broad range of evidence and values and include a wide range of attitudes, dispositions and sills as assessment achievement
    • Assessments result in decisions and actions from both day to day interactions with learners and through taking a periodic overview of progress
    • Assessments include judgements about how learners are performing related where appropriate to national standards

    Assessment results are regularly shared with parents through parent and student conferences and report cards.
