Eaton: A Culture Focused on Student Learning
The students at Eaton ES are the driving force behind instructional decisions. Like every public school in the country, we set goals and identify strengths and weaknesses to improve our instructional programming. Effective teaching is directly related to student learning. Measuring student progress and performance requires assessments that are different and varied. Teachers collect evaluative information in many ways. Examples include daily observations during guided and independent practice, an “exit slip” or short quiz at the end of a lesson, anecdotal notes, a culminating project, or a cumulative assessment after unit or standard is taught. All are valuable, crucial data points needed to take our students to even higher levels of achievement.
Game on!
