How are students assessed at Westview Cambodian International School?

At Westview, students take a series of assessments throughout the academic year that are carefully designed to assess their skills, knowledge and understanding taught throughout each unit. Our assessments are based on ‘real-world’ learning experiences, in order to facilitate a deep connection in students’ understanding of each of their academic subjects and the importance of them in the real world. Critical thinking is a core part of our curriculum, which is why all of our assessments force students to apply important critical thinking skills that they will need throughout life. Each assessment not only evaluates where students are in terms of their academic progress, but also acts as a new learning experience which will better prepare them for follow-on learning experiences. The goal of assessment is for teachers and students to understand how well they are doing against our academic standards and develop an awareness of what they need to do moving forward for improvement. At Westview we offer ongoing intervention and support for any students who may be struggling so no student gets left behind.
