Parents and guardians,
Ben Hill County Schools is piloting a new type of assessment. Unlike the comprehensive Georgia Milestones, Navvy assessments are broken down by standard. These mini assessments contain six to eight questions and are intended to help teachers learn about students’ progress throughout the year so that they can address students’ specific needs.
This year, your child will take a Navvy assessment over each essential standard in ELA and math classes. Here are some important things to know:
• The goal is for students to demonstrate mastery. Students show mastery by scoring a minimum of five on assessments that have eight questions and by scoring a minimum of four on assessments that have five or six questions.
• Students have three attempts on each Navvy assessment, but they will not be able to take a second or third attempt until they have received re-teaching on non-competency standards (i.e., standards that were not mastered). According to Navvy’s guidelines, students cannot re-take an assessment once mastery is achieved.
• Navvy assessment scores are not for a grade but may be entered in an unweighted category of Infinite Campus so you can track your student’s progress.
• Navvy assessments are rigorous. Please encourage your child to not be discouraged if he/she does not master a standard at first.
Think of Navvy assessments like a quiz that shows how students are doing so far. The goal of such formative assessments is to help teachers learn how to better meet students’ needs during, not after, instruction. This data also helps students learn what goals need to be accomplished to improve. If you have any questions, please reach out to your child’s teacher.
