International Bilingual Program Evaluation:

The “Skole-hjem samtale” is a 15-minute meeting focusing on each student. Each student´s parents, English, Maths, and Danish teacher meet to discuss the progress of the student.

The meeting focuses on a breakdown of the academic, social, and overall well-being of the individual child.

The skole-hjem samtale meeting is an oral evaluation, and is the second part of a five-tiered evaluation model that is used to monitor and assess each child. The five evaluations include:

  1. August14- Diagnostic testing / internal evaluations (ongoing)
  2. November 14- ”skole-hjem samtale”
  3. January 15- Progress report for Cambridge curriculum based subjects (after progression testing in December 2014)*
  4. Spring 15- “skole-hjem samtale 2” with written student report “elevplan”
  5. April 15- Cambridge exam results (after progression and checkpoint testing in 2015)**. Note that there is no progression testing in 1i (refer to ISJ letter dated 12 August 2014)

Written progress reports deal explicitly with the Cambridge based subjects in which students undergo testing: Maths, Science, and English.

Testing note:

*Cambridge progression testing: Maths, English, for stage(s) 3-6, science 4-6

**Cambridge checkpoint testing Maths, English, Science for stage 6


Evaluation in the Danish department:

For students between 1st –9th grade, student plans are formulated in the autumn and spring each year. The student plan is the specific basis for the future meeting between the school and parents.

In grades 1-7, students are tested anually by the school’s special education center, in the subject of Danish. The results are analyzed and communicated to the Danish teachers, who are given specific instruction regarding how to vary their lessons going forward.

In 7th-9th grade, students are evaluated according to the 7-point grading scale. This occurs three times a year. Additionaly, the teacher, for each subject, provides comments regarding the progress of each student.

Please note that students in the International Bilingual Department will be subject to differing progress reports.
