The GCS Assessment Department works with schools, teachers and staff from across the district and beyond to find the best ways to track student progress. Assessments are essentially tests, quizzes or other measures designed to monitor how well a student is doing, whether he understands the material, and whether he is achieving as well as he should. In addition to developing assessments, the department trains and provides other support to staff to ensure they are using all tools available in the best way possible. It’s all part of GCS’ goal to provide personalized instruction to every student.
