    Mission,‌ ‌Vision‌ 
     
     
    The‌ ‌mission‌ ‌of‌ ‌Benteen‌ ‌Elementary‌ ‌(B‌3‌)‌ ‌is‌ ‌‌to‌ ‌provide‌ ‌a‌ ‌comprehensive‌ ‌and‌ 
     
    rigorous‌ ‌curriculum‌ ‌that‌ ‌will‌ ‌prepare‌ ‌all‌ ‌students‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌lifelong‌ ‌learners‌ ‌and‌ 
     
    globally‌ ‌minded‌ ‌citizens,‌ ‌who‌ ‌are‌ ‌growing‌ ‌in‌ ‌academics,‌ ‌character,‌ ‌and‌ 
     
    leadership.‌   
     
     
    The‌ ‌vision‌ ‌of‌ ‌B‌3‌ ‌‌is‌ ‌to‌ ‌provide‌ ‌a‌ ‌world‌ ‌class‌ ‌education‌ ‌that‌ ‌prepares‌ ‌students‌ 
     
    of‌ ‌today‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌leaders‌ ‌of‌ ‌tomorrow.‌ 
     
     
    Philosophy‌ 
     
     
    B‌3‌ ‌‌philosophy‌ ‌regarding‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌is‌ ‌that‌‌ ‌they‌ ‌are‌ ‌tools‌ ‌utilized‌ ‌by‌ 
    teachers‌ ‌to‌ ‌design‌ ‌instruction‌ ‌that‌ ‌will‌ ‌help‌ ‌all‌ ‌students‌ ‌progress‌ ‌to‌ ‌higher‌ 
    academic‌ ‌levels.‌ ‌Instruction‌ ‌is‌ ‌data‌ ‌driven.‌ ‌By‌ ‌continuously‌ ‌collecting,‌ 
    analyzing,‌ ‌and‌ ‌reviewing‌ ‌our‌ ‌data,‌ ‌we‌ ‌are‌ ‌given‌ ‌the‌ ‌opportunity‌ ‌to‌ ‌make‌ 
    changes‌ ‌to‌ ‌our‌ ‌instruction‌ ‌so‌ ‌that‌ ‌we‌ ‌can‌ ‌reach‌ ‌each‌ ‌individual‌ ‌student.‌ 
    Moreover,‌ ‌our‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌are‌ ‌geared‌ ‌to‌ ‌evaluating‌ ‌students‌ ‌on‌ ‌multiple‌ 
     
    levels,‌ ‌contents,‌ ‌and‌ ‌styles.‌ ‌Assessments‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌giv‌en‌ ‌with‌ ‌fidelity.‌ 
     
    Assessments‌ ‌are‌ ‌able‌ ‌to‌ ‌help‌ ‌students‌ ‌take‌ ‌a‌ ‌more‌ ‌active‌ ‌role‌ ‌in‌ ‌their‌ 
     
    learning‌ ‌through‌ ‌student-led‌ ‌and/or‌ ‌teacher/student‌ ‌conferences‌ ‌and‌ ‌goal‌ 
     
    setting.‌  
     
    ‌‌What‌ ‌is‌ ‌assessed‌  
    Students‌ ‌are‌ ‌assessed‌ ‌in‌ ‌every‌ ‌content‌ ‌area‌ ‌multiple‌ ‌times‌ 
    throughout‌ ‌the‌ ‌year.‌ ‌Students‌ ‌enrolled‌ ‌in‌ ‌Dual‌ ‌Language‌ ‌Immersion‌ 
    classes‌ ‌may‌ ‌be‌ ‌assessed‌ ‌in‌ ‌English‌ ‌and‌ ‌Spanish‌ ‌to‌ ‌show‌ ‌mastery.‌  
    ‌‌When‌  
    Students‌ ‌are‌ ‌assessed‌ ‌on‌ ‌a‌ ‌continuous‌ ‌basis.‌ ‌Benchmark‌ 
    assessments‌ ‌are‌ ‌given‌ ‌to‌ ‌students‌ ‌every‌ ‌quarter.‌ ‌Students‌ ‌are‌ ‌tested‌ 
    three‌ ‌times‌ ‌during‌ ‌the‌ ‌school‌ ‌year‌ ‌using‌ ‌the‌ ‌Renaissance‌ ‌STAR‌ 
    assessment.‌ ‌Students‌ ‌will‌ ‌also‌ ‌be‌ ‌assessed‌ ‌throughout‌ ‌the‌ ‌school‌ 
    year,‌ ‌and‌ ‌after‌ ‌every‌ ‌unit.‌  
    ‌How‌  
    Formative‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌used‌ ‌to‌ ‌check‌ ‌for‌ ‌students'‌ ‌progress.‌ 
    Summative‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌are‌ ‌given‌ ‌to‌ ‌assess‌ ‌student‌ ‌mastery‌ ‌of‌ 
    standards.‌ ‌When‌ ‌content‌ ‌allows,‌ ‌product-driven‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌

    Benteen‌ ‌Elementary‌ ‌Assessment‌ ‌Policy‌ ‌2019‌ ‌-‌ ‌2020‌  
     
      
    used‌ ‌to‌ ‌give‌ ‌students‌ ‌additional‌ ‌opportunities‌ ‌to‌ ‌show‌ ‌what‌ ‌they‌ 
    know.‌ ‌Various‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌used‌ ‌to‌ ‌continually‌ ‌assess‌ 
    students’‌ ‌needs‌ ‌and‌ ‌to‌ ‌monitor‌ ‌if‌ ‌students‌ ‌are‌ ‌making‌ ‌progress.‌ 
     
    ‌‌Who‌ 
    Every‌ ‌student‌ ‌will‌ ‌engage‌ ‌in‌ ‌some‌ ‌form‌ ‌of‌ ‌assessment.‌ ‌Different‌ 
    subgroups‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌required‌ ‌to‌ ‌take‌ ‌different‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌as‌ ‌needed.‌ 
    These‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌are‌ ‌mandatory‌ ‌from‌ ‌the‌ ‌state‌ ‌of‌ ‌Georgia.‌ 
    Additionally,‌ ‌some‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌school‌ ‌or‌ ‌district‌ ‌driven.‌ 
    Students‌ ‌enrolled‌ ‌in‌ ‌Dual‌ ‌Language‌ ‌Immersion‌ ‌classes‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ 
    assessed‌ ‌in‌ ‌both‌ ‌English‌ ‌and‌ ‌Spanish.‌ ‌(Dual‌ ‌Language‌ ‌Immersion)‌  
    ‌Implementation‌  
    Assessments‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌implemented‌ ‌as‌ ‌needed‌ ‌and‌ ‌monitored‌ ‌by‌ ‌staff.‌ 
    It‌ ‌is‌ ‌not‌ ‌our‌ ‌aim‌ ‌to‌ ‌overly‌ ‌assess‌ ‌students,‌ ‌but‌ ‌to‌ ‌provide‌ ‌them‌ 
    multiple‌ ‌opportunities‌ ‌to‌ ‌show‌ ‌how‌ ‌they‌ ‌have‌ ‌mastered‌ ‌the‌ ‌content,‌ 
    and‌ ‌provide‌ ‌opportunities‌ ‌for‌ ‌students‌ ‌to‌ ‌reflect‌ ‌on‌ ‌their‌ ‌own‌ ‌learning.‌

    Assessment‌ ‌usage‌  
     
    ‌‌Assessments‌ ‌are‌ ‌designed‌ ‌to‌ ‌gather‌ ‌data‌ ‌about‌ ‌students‌ ‌to‌ ‌help‌ ‌us‌ 
    identify‌ ‌their‌ ‌strengths‌ ‌both‌ ‌academically‌ ‌and‌ ‌socially.‌ ‌This‌ ‌information‌ ‌will‌ 
    allow‌ ‌us‌ ‌to‌ ‌provide‌ ‌student‌ ‌feedback,‌ ‌identify‌ ‌students‌ ‌that‌ ‌will‌ ‌need‌ ‌extra‌ 
    support,‌ ‌interventions,‌ ‌or‌ ‌refer‌ ‌them‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌RTI/SST‌ ‌process,‌ ‌as‌ ‌well‌ ‌as‌ 
    identify‌ ‌those‌ ‌students‌ ‌ready‌ ‌for‌ ‌more‌ ‌advanced‌ ‌work.‌ ‌Additionally,‌ ‌data‌ 
    from‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌will‌ ‌help‌ ‌us‌ ‌better‌ ‌understand‌ ‌the‌ ‌needs‌ ‌of‌ ‌all‌ ‌students‌ 
    in‌ ‌order‌ ‌to‌ ‌provide‌ ‌a‌ ‌more‌ ‌equitable‌ ‌educational‌ ‌experience.‌ ‌Our‌

    Benteen‌ ‌Elementary‌ ‌Assessment‌ ‌Policy‌ ‌2019‌ ‌-‌ ‌2020‌  
     
      
    assessments‌ ‌are‌ ‌clear‌ ‌and‌ ‌concise,‌ ‌aligned‌ ‌directly‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌Georgia‌ 
    Standards‌ ‌of‌ ‌Excellence‌ ‌and‌ ‌reflect‌ ‌the‌ ‌information‌ ‌students‌ ‌have‌ ‌been‌

    Student-led‌ ‌conferences‌ ‌via‌ ‌“Google‌ ‌Classroom”‌ ‌puts‌ ‌more‌ 
    accountability‌ ‌on‌ ‌students‌ ‌and‌ ‌helps‌ ‌to‌ ‌encourage‌ ‌more‌ ‌parent‌ 
    involvement‌ ‌by‌ ‌inviting‌ ‌parents‌ ‌to‌ ‌attend‌ ‌conferences.‌ ‌B‌3‌ ‌‌will‌ 
    implement‌ ‌SLCs‌ ‌so‌ ‌that‌ ‌students‌ ‌can‌ ‌be‌ ‌more‌ ‌reflective‌ ‌and‌ ‌take‌ 
    more‌ ‌ownership‌ ‌over‌ ‌their‌ ‌school‌ ‌work.‌ ‌This‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌a‌ ‌new‌ ‌initiative‌ 
    that‌ ‌will‌ ‌merge‌ ‌IB,‌ ‌SEL,‌ ‌and‌ ‌student‌ ‌academic‌ ‌performance.‌ 
     
    Exhibition‌  
     
    ‌‌5th‌ ‌grade‌ ‌will‌ ‌undergo‌ ‌an‌ ‌exhibition‌ ‌during‌ ‌the‌ ‌last‌ ‌semester‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ 
    school‌ ‌year.‌ ‌The‌ ‌exhibition‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌designed‌ ‌so‌ ‌that‌ ‌students‌ ‌can‌ 
    show‌ ‌what‌ ‌they‌ ‌have‌ ‌learned‌ ‌throughout‌ ‌their‌ ‌entire‌ ‌course‌ ‌of‌ 
    education‌ ‌at‌ ‌B‌3‌.‌ ‌Students‌ ‌that‌ ‌have‌ ‌not‌ ‌attended‌ ‌B‌3‌‌ ‌their‌ ‌entire‌ 
    school‌ ‌career‌ ‌will‌ ‌also‌ ‌be‌ ‌able‌ ‌to‌ ‌participate.‌ 
     
    Writing‌ 
     
    ‌Writing‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌major‌ ‌component‌ ‌of‌ ‌both‌ ‌IB‌ ‌and‌ ‌Benteen‌ ‌Elementary.‌ 
    Students‌ ‌in‌ ‌grades‌ ‌Kindergarten‌ ‌-‌ ‌2‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌tested‌ ‌on‌ ‌their‌ ‌writing‌ 
    ability‌ ‌quarterly.‌ ‌Students‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌given‌ ‌a‌ ‌writing‌ ‌assessment‌ ‌with‌ 
    their‌ ‌battery‌ ‌of‌ ‌pre-assessments‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌beginning‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌school‌ ‌year.‌ 
    Students‌ ‌will‌ ‌then‌ ‌be‌ ‌assessed‌ ‌every‌ ‌9‌ ‌weeks‌ ‌throughout‌ ‌the‌ ‌school‌ 
    year.‌ ‌Students‌ ‌in‌ ‌grades‌ ‌3-5‌ ‌will‌ ‌follow‌ ‌a‌ ‌similar‌ ‌format.‌ ‌However,‌ 
    students'‌ ‌final‌ ‌writing‌ ‌assessment‌ ‌will‌ ‌take‌ ‌place‌ ‌on‌ ‌their‌ ‌Georgia‌ 
    Milestones‌ ‌Assessment.‌ ‌The‌ ‌writing‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌will‌ ‌follow‌ ‌the‌ 
    design‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌Georgia‌ ‌Milestones.‌ ‌This‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌an‌ ‌effort‌ ‌to‌ ‌improve‌ 
    the‌ ‌writing‌ ‌scores‌ ‌of‌ ‌students,‌ ‌who‌ ‌stay‌ ‌within‌ ‌the‌ ‌Benteen‌ ‌PYP‌ 
    program,‌ ‌by‌ ‌5th‌ ‌grade.‌

    Formative‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌at‌ ‌Benteen‌ ‌Elementary‌ ‌are‌ ‌to‌ ‌measure‌ ‌how‌ ‌well‌ 
    students‌ ‌are‌ ‌progressing‌ ‌towards‌ ‌goals‌ ‌that‌ ‌have‌ ‌been‌ ‌set‌ ‌by‌ ‌the‌ ‌student,‌ 
    teacher,‌ ‌and‌ ‌parents.‌ ‌These‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌gather‌ ‌important‌ ‌snapshots‌ ‌of‌ ‌a‌ 
    student's‌ ‌progress‌ ‌at‌ ‌various‌ ‌points‌ ‌throughout‌ ‌the‌ ‌year.‌ ‌The‌ ‌formative‌ 
    assessments‌ ‌are‌ ‌indicators‌ ‌for‌ ‌teachers‌ ‌to‌ ‌determine‌ ‌how‌ ‌well‌ ‌students‌ 
    have‌ ‌learned‌ ‌new‌ ‌concepts‌ ‌and‌ ‌skills.‌ ‌Formative‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌help‌ ‌us‌ 
    pinpoint‌ ‌areas‌ ‌where‌ ‌we‌ ‌could‌ ‌improve‌ ‌our‌ ‌instruction.‌

    Summative‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌show‌ ‌us‌ ‌where‌ ‌students‌ ‌stand‌ ‌at‌ ‌the‌ ‌end‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ 
    school‌ ‌year.‌ ‌This‌ ‌data‌ ‌helps‌ ‌us‌ ‌to‌ ‌generate‌ ‌a‌ ‌new‌ ‌road‌ ‌map‌ ‌for‌ ‌each‌ 
    student‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌following‌ ‌school‌ ‌year.‌ ‌Summative‌ ‌data‌ ‌provides‌ ‌a‌ ‌year‌ ‌to‌ 
    year‌ ‌view‌ ‌of‌ ‌a‌ ‌students’‌ ‌growth‌ ‌and‌ ‌their‌ ‌growth‌ ‌potential.‌ ‌It‌ ‌is‌ ‌important‌ ‌to‌ 
    remember‌ ‌that‌ ‌summative‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌do‌ ‌not‌ ‌make-up‌ ‌the‌ ‌entire‌ ‌child,‌ 
    but‌ ‌it‌ ‌does‌ ‌provide‌ ‌a‌ ‌snapshot‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌child’s‌ ‌learning‌ ‌at‌ ‌that‌ ‌time.‌  
     
    Balanced‌ ‌Assessment‌ 
     
    Benteen‌ ‌Elementary‌ ‌will‌ ‌use‌ ‌a‌ ‌balanced‌ ‌assessment‌ ‌approach‌ ‌which‌ ‌will‌ 
    allow‌ ‌students‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌tested‌ ‌on‌ ‌the‌ ‌same‌ ‌content‌ ‌in‌ ‌a‌ ‌variety‌ ‌of‌ ‌ways.‌ ‌If‌ ‌a‌ 
    student‌ ‌is‌ ‌not‌ ‌successful‌ ‌using‌ ‌one‌ ‌method‌ ‌of‌ ‌assessment,‌ ‌the‌ ‌teacher‌ ‌has‌ 
    the‌ ‌autonomy‌ ‌to‌ ‌reassess‌ ‌the‌ ‌student‌ ‌using‌ ‌the‌ ‌same‌ ‌or‌ ‌a‌ ‌different‌ 
    method.‌ ‌Assessments‌ ‌may‌ ‌include‌ ‌but‌ ‌are‌ ‌not‌ ‌limited‌ ‌to‌ ‌oral,‌ ‌written,‌ 
    “acting”‌ ‌out‌ ‌or‌ ‌product-driven‌ ‌assessment.‌

    Students‌ ‌in‌ ‌Dual‌ ‌Language‌ ‌Immersion‌ ‌may‌ ‌be‌ ‌tested‌ ‌in‌ ‌English‌ ‌and/or‌ 
    Spanish‌ ‌by‌ ‌the‌ ‌classroom‌ ‌teacher.‌ ‌However,‌ ‌they‌ ‌can‌ ‌only‌ ‌be‌ ‌tested‌ ‌in‌ 
    English‌ ‌if‌ ‌they‌ ‌are‌ ‌not‌ ‌enrolled‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌Dual‌ ‌Language‌ ‌Immersion‌ ‌program.‌ 
    Additionally,‌ ‌all‌ ‌standard‌ ‌assessments‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌in‌ ‌English.‌  
     
     
     
    Reporting‌ ‌-‌ ‌Feedback‌ 
     
    Benteen‌ ‌Elementary‌ ‌provides‌ ‌students,‌ ‌parents,‌ ‌and‌ ‌the‌ ‌necessary‌ 
    stakeholders‌ ‌feedback‌ ‌based‌ ‌on‌ ‌the‌ ‌data.‌ ‌Data‌ ‌is‌ ‌analysed‌ ‌on‌ ‌Mondays‌ 
    during‌ ‌Data‌ ‌PLCs.‌ ‌The‌ ‌data‌ ‌is‌ ‌shared‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌administrative‌ ‌team‌ ‌on‌ ‌a‌ 
    continual‌ ‌basis‌ ‌and‌ ‌helps‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌decision‌ ‌making‌ ‌process‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌school.‌ 
     
     
    Reports‌ ‌and‌ ‌feedback‌ ‌will‌ ‌be:‌ 
     
     
    Timely‌  
     
    Provided‌ ‌as‌ ‌needed‌ ‌or‌ ‌every‌ ‌4‌ ‌1/2‌ ‌weeks‌

    Every‌ ‌staff‌ ‌member‌ ‌is‌ ‌responsible‌ ‌for‌ ‌ensuring‌ ‌the‌ ‌validity,‌ ‌accuracy,‌ ‌and‌ 
     
    well-being‌ ‌of‌ ‌all‌ ‌assessments.‌ ‌Each‌ ‌staff‌ ‌is‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌aware‌ ‌of‌ ‌their‌ 
     
    responsibility‌ ‌and‌ ‌roles‌ ‌during‌ ‌any‌ ‌given‌ ‌testing‌ ‌period.‌ ‌The‌ ‌school‌ ‌testing‌ 
     
    coordinator‌ ‌is‌ ‌Christian‌ ‌Padgett,‌ ‌Assistant‌ ‌Principal.‌ ‌The‌ ‌secondary‌ ‌testing‌ 
     
    coordinators‌ ‌are‌ ‌the‌ ‌counselor,‌ ‌Dr.‌ ‌Horton‌ ‌and‌ ‌the‌ ‌RTI/SST‌ ‌coordinator,‌ 
     
    Lorraine‌ ‌McFadden.‌ 
     
     
    This‌ ‌assessment‌ ‌policy‌ ‌was‌ ‌created‌ ‌by‌ ‌the‌ ‌Benteen‌ ‌Pedagogical‌ ‌IB‌ 
     
    Leadership‌ ‌Team.‌ ‌This‌ ‌policy‌ ‌received‌ ‌input‌ ‌from‌ ‌parents,‌ ‌community,‌ ‌and‌ 
     
    staff.‌ ‌Only‌ ‌this‌ ‌committee‌ ‌may‌ ‌change,‌ ‌revise,‌ ‌or‌ ‌alter‌ ‌this‌ ‌policy‌ ‌for‌ 
     
    Benteen‌ ‌Elementary.‌ ‌This‌ ‌policy‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌reviewed‌ ‌on‌ ‌an‌ ‌annual‌ ‌basis.‌
