How are Kindergarten students assessed and evaluated?

The assessment portfolio is a method of storing student-produced materials, students’ process in learning and various forms that the teacher has completed on the students’ progress. It allows teachers, students and parents to assess student growth and overall learning progress during a period of time. Work samples, such as drawing, emergent writing and print-outs of computer work, photos, assessment tools and students’ reflection are major components of the assessment portfolio. After assessment information has been gathered it is analyzed and shared with students and parents/caregivers. Indications of growth and development are communicated through a variety of methods, including scheduled information sharing sessions, informal visits, assessment portfolios and sometimes, depending on local evaluation policy, through report cards.
