This data collection provides teachers and administrators key information on how Hartland Lakeside students are learning at multiple intervals in their school career. The attached assessment policy provides an overview of the assessment types and uses.
Learning targets have been identified by content area and grade levels. Target assessments are major benchmarks then measure student growth towards these learning targets. Student progress on learning targets is reported on his/her report card each trimester.
