ICAGeorgia complies with State Performance Targets (SPTs), and the annual Georgia Student Assessment Handbook. We recognize the necessity of authentic assessment and the ongoing monitoring of student progress and growth rates.
Students are expected to participate in statewide assessments and district-wide progress monitoring to show academic gains throughout the school year. ICAGeorgia will use the following tools to measure student progress:
Last, the testing coordinator will train school personnel on procedural usage and the benefits of the Statewide Longitudinal Data System (SLDS). SLDS is used to compare ICAGeorgia performance to the state’s performance on each subject-area assessment. In addition, SLDS is used to analyze assessment data by subgroups such as gender, race, SWD, ELL, etc. Conversely, we use SLDS to identify students who did not perform successfully on the state assessment so an immediate referral to the Response to Intervention (RTI) can occur and the achievement gap in the identified area(s) can be addressed. ICAGeorgia administrators and teachers will collaborate regularly to analyze test results, interpret patterns in the data, and develop action plans to address areas where students need better understanding, skills, or retention of material.
The best way to learn more about our school’s mission and immersion program is to see it in action for yourself. We invite you to schedule a tour and learn more about us.
