Great emphasis is placed on assessment data, however, it is but one piece in the educational process. At WiSHES we focus on:
- Identifying holes in a students learning
- Teaching and reteaching concepts at the point that the disconnect occurred
- Rebuilding students confidence in the areas that they struggle
- Effective communication with the student and parents to gain more insight into areas where we can be of assistance
This assessment is done onsite and facilitated by WiSHES staff at our Trotwood, Ohio location. Data collected will aid in identifying fundamental math deficiencies. Because mathematics is cumulative until fundamentals are effectively understood the foundation upon which this academic house is build can never be stable. We therefore, seek to identify concepts the student is struggling with and sure up that foundation.
Reading Comprehension Assessment
This assessment will aid in determining students ability to understand and interpret text read. To accurately understand text the following skills are needed:
- Decoding what is read
- Understanding Implicit Content: Make connections between what is read and what they already know
- Extraction of Explicit Content: Identify and extract responses directly from the text
- Think deeply about what they have read
- Paraphrase responses to questions asked
