What does Assessment Look Like at TNS?

Hello Neighborhood School Community,

Dyanthe and some of our wonderful teachers held an information session at 8:30AM, on Monday, January 28th.  The information session was held in the PTA room and is called, “How do teachers know how our children are doing?”  Pre-K to 4th/5th Grade Teachers shared the many ways they “measure” student growth and make decisions about class instruction.

This was the first of five discussions about assessment, academic progress & testing at TNS.

The other four sessions are:

1.  “TNS graduates return to talk about middle school,” on February 13, 6 PM

Learn how TNS prepares students for the academic and social expectations of middle school and beyond.

3.  “What doesn’t assessment look like at TNS?” on March 4, 8:30 AM

Dyanthe will talk about assessment systems and metrics used in most public schools in NYC and why/how TNS has been able to use measures more aligned with our progressive philosophy.

3.  “State testing days at The Neighborhood School,” March 25, 8:30AM

Second/third and 4th/5th grade teachers and Dyanthe will share what testing days look like at TNS for students who take the tests and those who don’t.

4.  “What is performance-based assessment?”, date TBD

Learn about The Neighborhood School’s pilot program using Performance Based Assessment for graduating students

These information sessions are organized in collaboration with the Advocacy Committee, an independent parent- and guardian-led group dedicated to informing the school community about education policy.

All events will be held in the PTA room unless otherwise announced.
