Performance Assessments 

Also known as "authentic" or "classroom-based" assessments, on-going performance assessments will inform instruction at CTL, thus enabling teachers to individualize and differentiate instruction for students. Performance-based assessments such as student self-assessments, portfolios, and projects are student-centered and paint a more complete picture of each student's progress and needs allowing the teacher, parent and child to see genuine progress over time.  They also build critical thinking skills and help the child see the connectedness between content areas and the real world. Offering more than a paper-and-pencil generated “snap shot” of learning, performance assessments focus on what a child can do and understand, have intrinsic value, engage students, motivate them, build confidence and transfer readily to life beyond school as students learn to assess their own growth and set goals for future learning.
