Northern Summit Academy uses a variety of assessment methods and tools in order to determine a student’s instructional levels, monitor academic progress, evaluate a student’s mastery of grade level skills and content material and to evaluate our school’s program effectiveness. The school has a universal assessment plan that includes online and individual paper/pencil and reading tests. At the time of enrollment the assigned teacher will review assessment requirements with the student and parent. The assessment plan is based on grade level and academic needs. All Northern Summit Academy students in grades 3-8 and grade 11 are required to participate in the California State Testing. Students in grades 5, 7, and 9 are required to complete the Physical Fitness Testing.
