Essential in every good education is the opportunity to test ourselves against a standard. At Marble Valley Academy students have the chance to show competence for all prescribed objectives based on written tests, quizzes, performance evaluations, projects, speeches, observations and personal reflection. Standardized tests are administered each year. Testing results are sent to families in June and teachers use the reports to fine tune and personalize instruction for the next year. In addition to this, parents and students can check grades and progress online at anytime and report cards are prepared for the end of each semester, with progress reports at the quarters. Teachers post daily topics and assignments using an electronic planner. Homework is age appropriate and increases in amount and difficulty as students get older.
