At NAIS Manila we have a robust Assessment Cycle that provides good quality whole class data. Due to being in virtual schooling for such a long time, it was decided to have classes complete online tests at the start and end of the year. This was to better ensure all students are making progress and to prove the effectiveness of our Virtual School Experience.
The results speak for themselves and we couldn’t be prouder!
Take for example these first charts which show how Year 6 performed in Maths at the start of the school year:
As the test was done at the beginning of the academic year, it is no wonder that they are not up to the national average yet (as they hadn’t covered most of the material).
Then take a look at these second set of graphs which shows how students performed at the end of the year:
This demonstrates the amazing progress students make at NAIS Manila. Though of course, we don’t just teach children to become good at taking tests. As well as acquiring knowledge we want them to gain skills that will help them throughout the course of their lives.
I have watched many lessons that flip the idea of the traditional classroom by having students present to their teachers and peers. The way that students speak so confidently is a delight to watch and shows how interpersonal skills have developed despite the lockdown. Students have shown amazing respect for each other through active listening skills and supportive messages, demonstrated a great attitude to learning and, above all things, shown incredible ambition to be the best they can be.
We couldn’t be happier with our students and those supportive parents who have helped them persevere and achieve excellent results.
