Enlightium Academy recommends regular academic assessment as a part of each student’s academic journey.

Regular assessments are beneficial to:

  • Provide students and parents valuable information about the student’s academic standing by identifying strengths and potential gaps in learning.
  • Show parents their student’s achievement compared to their peers nationally.
  • Generate valuable data for Enlightium Academy to make strategic curriculum changes and improvements.

Additionally, most states require students to participate in a standardized assessment annually or bi-annually. Enlightium provides several opportunities for students to meet their state’s requirements.

Assessment Options

Each assessment provides a range of benefits including achievement data and merit scholarship opportunities as well as differentiated instruction for each student based on the results of the assessment. This can be especially helpful in improving conceptual understanding in weak areas.

Some assessments are important for meeting college admission requirements.
