A crucial element to determining each child's unique needs is assessment testing. Each child in grades 3–10 takes benchmark tests at the beginning of the year to diagnose strengths and challenges, and again each spring to assess academic growth achieved throughout the year. State testing is also included, and ongoing testing is administered as needed to ensure each child is making progress against goals. For high school students, the ILP expands beyond academic objectives to include post-secondary goals for college and/or a career."We've got to find what works and accelerates learning. For each child, that may be different. We need to collectively settle for nothing short of academic excellence, which is doable with the right approach, cognitive science, innovative products and perseverance. I applaud the growing number of teachers and schools who are embracing the new possibilities to individualize options for students, whether it's adding an extra online AP class for an advanced learner, drawing on online resources for credit recovery to ensure graduation, turning the traditional classroom model into a blended learning approach, or offering full-time online schooling options," said Dr. Margaret Jorgensen, K12's Chief Academic Officer. "I am also thrilled to see parents embracing a more involved role in their child's education and embracing a more proactive partnership with teachers and schools."
