Our Lady of Grace uses multiple measures (multiple sources of evidence of varying types) to evaluate skills and knowledge of our students. OLG understands that one or two tests should never be the sole indicators of our students' achievement and that assessment and testing should never overwhelm a student's classroom experience.
OLG uses Renaissance STAR Math and Reading (1st-8th grade) and STAR Early Literacy (Transitional Kindergarten- Kindergarten) online Assessment programs throughout the year to screen student proficiency levels and so teachers can monitor progress and determine appropriate instructional levels.
ACT Aspire is given each Spring to students in 3rd-8th grade. The assessment gives important information to determine student progress and track progress for career and college readiness.
Additional summative and formative assessment includes: Accelerated Readers, teacher observations; in class tests, essays, tasks, projects, and presentations.
