The assessment program at The Janus School provides instructors, parents, and outside sources relevant information about a student's progress and skill development.
Assessment, in the form of standardized achievement testing, informal assessment, progress monitoring measures, and grades, provides instructors diagnostic information for developing individualized, dynamic instructional programs for each student.
This information also provides parents with feedback and quantitative data for reevaluation and placement purposes.
Standardized assessment is completed three times during the school year. Speech and language testing is completed twice during the school year for those students receiving speech and language services. These assessments help faculty monitor progress and use the results to better address the individual needs of the students.
AIMSweb is another program that is used to help track the student’s progress. AIMSweb is a benchmark and progress monitoring system based on direct, frequent and continuous student assessment. The results are reported to students, parents, teachers and administrators via a web-based data management and reporting system to determine response to intervention.
In addition to the testing completed at Janus, the SAT and ACT are offered to the Upper Division students two times during the school year: December and May. The PSAT is offered in October to 10th and 11th grade students. Testing accomodations are provided by The Janus School based upon a student's psychoeducational evaluation.
