ST1.5: Students demonstrate their learning through performance-based assessments and express their conclusions through elaborated explanations of their thinking.
River Ridge Academy students are challenged on a weekly basis in all classrooms to demonstrate their learning through multiple measures including performance-based assessments. Outside the expectation of the PLTW curriculum used in grades K-8, our students are assessment through a variety of performance-based assessments regularly. Some ways our students demonstrate mastery include: creating videos, websites, dioramas, displays, and artifacts to name a few. In addition students articulate their mastery of content both verbally and through constructed responses across all content areas.
During our first year, we hosted a STEM night showcasing student work at each grade level. Students were asked to present their work to the community as well as explain and defend their work when asked.
