Testing and Monitoring

Student Assessment is an integral part of Virtus Education’s Educational System. Ongoing assessment is used to evaluate student learning and permit timely, positive intervention.


Teachers obtain assessment information through a variety of means, which may include formal and informal observations, discussions, learning conversations, questioning, conferences, homework, tasks done in groups, demonstrations, projects, portfolios, developmental continual, performances, peer and self-assessments, self-reflections, essays, and tests.

Evaluation is based on assessment of learning that provides evidence of student achievement at strategic times throughout the grade/course, often at the end of a period of learning.

Type of Assessments:

1. Diagnostic assessment: Occurs before instruction begins so teachers can determine students’ readiness to learn new knowledge and skills, as well as obtain information about their interests and learning preferences.
2. Formative assessment: Occurs frequently and in an ongoing manner during instruction, while students are still gaining knowledge and practicing skills.
3. Summative assessment: Occurs at or near the end of a period of learning, and may be used to inform further instruction.

Our school provides programs that allow prompt, reliable assessment of student knowledge as well as effective follow-up. One such program, Measure of Academic Progress (MAP), is used to assess student knowledge of every concept taught.

MAP assessments provide detailed, actionable data about where each child is on their unique learning path. Because student engagement is essential to any testing experience, MAP create test items that interest children and help to capture detail about what they know and what they're ready to learn.

In order to assure a better accuracy in the students’ assessments, CCIS adopts a new online version of the "Brigance Standardized Test". This type of assessment is a powerful assessment tool and it is also the outcome of many years of research in the field of special education. It helps the educators to develop goals and objectives for IEPs (Individualized Education Program) and guide instructional planning. It also helps to identify students' present level of performance, monitor progress and diagnose delays, disabilities, giftedness, and other exceptionalities
