• Annual Washington State School Report Cards
    Each year the State of Washington issues a report card for each public school.  We take great pride in the achievement of our students.    You can visit the OSPI (Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction) and view our Wilkes Elementary Report Card and the Bainbridge Island School District Report Card.
     
    Assessment
    Throughout the year, teachers use a variety of formal and informal assessment tools to monitor student progress and plan for instruction.   Most often, the day to day monitoring of student progress within the classroom setting is the primary form of information gathering.  However, teachers also use a range of more formal assessment tools to measure and assess progress.  If you have questions about any of these tools, please contact Principal Amii Pratt or Counselor Susan Constan.

    Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA)
    Our 3rd and 4th grade students participate in the State mandated testing in English language arts and math at the end of the year. You can learn more about the Smarter Balanced at http://www.k12.wa.us/assessment/StateTesting/MSP.aspx 

    DRA2 - Developmental Reading Assessment
    This formal assessment in administered to 1st-4th grade students individually by their teacher in the fall and spring. Kindergarten students take a shorter version of the assessment in the spring.  This individual assessment can be given more often through the year if the teacher is in need of further information regarding the development of reading skills.  This assessment assesses the ability of the student to read and comprehend information.  As students progress in reading skills, this assessment requires students to write about their comprehension making this an assessment of both reading and writing skills.
