How we Conduct Assessments for Each Course

At Astor International School, we conduct regular assessments of educational development. At the beginning of each term, phonics and reading assessments are performed. Throughout the term, we conduct regular formative and summative assessments to determine where the child is at and to monitor their progress over time. This helps to facilitate the teachers' planning and ensure we have catered for the individual needs of students.

Two reports a year are provided to the School's students: 

 

  • At the end of Term 2 - Mid December

 

  • At the end of Term 4 - Mid June 

These reports cover all learning areas and provide comprehensive comments about the progress and efforts of each student.

Additionally, there is a Parent-Teacher Conference at the end of Term 1 in each academic year.

A Student-Led Learning Journey is conducted at the end of Term 3 in each academic year. The parents are given a chance to come onsite and become students and the children to become their teachers. It is a wonderful chance for parents to immerse in the classroom environment and find out how children learn in the school, and for children to enhance their own learning through the art of teaching others.
