student evaluation

Parents rely on schools to tell them whether or not their child is performing on grade level. Often this is conveyed through Grades, End-of-Grade Scores, or Classroom measures such as I-Ready or Dibels. While these are important, providing more comprehensive and in-depth information through a standardized evaluation will provide a clearer picture of your child's academic achievement. 

 

The WIAT-4 (Wechler Individual Achievement Test) Evaluates:

     -Reading

     -Writing

     -Math 

     -Dyslexia Indicator 

 

Informal assessments will be used to:

     -Pinpoint where intervention

       should begin.

     -Where the gaps are in learning.

Reports (when requested) Will: 

     -be Comprehensive

     -provide evidence-based 

       recommendations

     -present a clear picture of

       strengths and weaknesses

Mrs. Kuhn has been one of the most influential educators in my daughter's life thus far.  Her patience and understanding of every child's individuality are one of the many factors that set her aside from all others.  We will never be able to thank her enough for what she has done for our daughter.

Leslie always pushes for her students to get the help they need in their best environment. She was great support for me as a parent. Both of my children pushed through their struggles with her help and are now A and B Students. She has a big heart for helping any child that is struggling and I'm very thankful for that both personally and professionally.

Mrs. Kuhn advocated with the testing administrators at the district level for our daughter to be tested for Dyslexia. She modified her teaching methods based on our daughter’s learning needs. If it wasn’t for Mrs. Kuhn's determination, we don’t know if our daughter would have been able to graduate.
