Evaluating the developmental milestones across three years of Kindergarten is essential to build a strong foundation of essential skills in children. Over two decades our assessment mechanisms have evolved to capture the development of essential skills in students. Portfolios of student work help in tracking the progress over the course of an entire academic year. This kind of evidence driven approach to learning helps teachers and parents understand curricular areas that need greater reinforcement. Acquisition of skills is further put to test through conventional classroom based assessments that are graded, which cater to the more formal requirements of the curriculum.
