An alliance of mutual understanding and cooperation is vital. At Wisdom High we work with the parents for the child's welfare, as we firmly believe that this is a shared objective and a collective effort. Parents are encouraged to be frank in providing us information about the child's previous records and behavioral concerns, if any. This enables us to provide the required support system and guidance to help the child. The school maintains an open communication system with the parents and children. Wisdom High prides in itself being accessible to children and parents and welcomes a dialogue in matters of concern.
WHIS follows two types of assessments- formative and summative. Assessment is the use of a variety of procedures to collect information about learning and instruction. Formative and summative assessment represent two classifications of assessment, each with a distinct purpose. Formative assessment is commonly referred to as assessment for learning, in which the focus is on monitoring student response to and progress with instruction. Formative assessment provides immediate feedback to both the teacher and student regarding the learning process. Summative assessment is commonly referred to as assessment of learning, in which the focus is on determining what the student has learned at the end of a unit of instruction or at the end of a grade level (e.g., through grade-level, standardized assessments). Summative assessment helps determine to what extent the instructional and learning goals have been met. Formative and summative assessment contribute in different ways to the larger goals of the assessment process.
Educational perspectives have been changing with time.
