What is achieved during a learning assessment?
Self awareness, insight, strategies and support
A learning assessment is designed to bring about awareness and insight into a child's strengths and challenges. It can be used to identify learning challenges, giftedness and learning preferences.
A strength-based approach is adopted rather than a deficit model. This is an important part of communication and identification of challenges, so that a child does not become or feel limited by the discoveries.
Strategies and support are identified for each individual and designed based on educational, psychological best-practice research as well as experiential strategies to help navigate a productive path forward for each learner.
These are communicated to the child, parent and, when requested the child's educators.
