TESTING AND DIAGNOSIS
Teaching and learning
Our assessments are both formal and incidental so we can gather relevant information about student performance or progress, or to determine student interests to make judgments about their learning process. This encourages the understanding of our teaching as a formative process that evolves over time with feedback and input from students.
What makes assessment for learning effective is how well the information is used.
We work towards a cycle of continuous improvement.
Students and tutors use the information gained from assessment to determine their next teaching and learning steps.
Where appropriate parents can be kept informed of next plans for teaching and learning and the progress being made, so they can play an active role in their children’s learning.
Management use the information to support tutors and determine professional development needs
We provide affordable tutoring as we work with students in small groups which vary from 2 to 5 students in each session (year 10 to 12 usually have no more then 3 students). This is NOT group tutoring as each students works on their own program and needs. We personalise each and every students learning plan by providing a diverse variety of educational programs, learning experiences, instructional approaches, and academic support strategies that are intended to address the distinct learning needs, interests, aspirations of individual students. Our "Personalized learning" approach is an alternative to “one-size-fits-all” approach used in schools where teachers may, for example, provide all students in a given course with the same type of instruction, the same assignments, and the same assessemnts with little variation or modification from student to student. Our goal is to make individuals learning needs the primary consideration in important educational and instructional decisions with in each group session..
