HOW WE ASSESS OUR STUDENTS

Aswell as school grades, the HAL (Habits & Attitudes to Learning) rubric identifies many of the dispositions and approaches to learning that students need to develop if they are to cultivate a growth mindset and become independent lifelong learners. It is used by teachers for assigning a habits and attitudes to learning grade (from 1-7). Students can also use the rubric to self-assess or set personal growth goals.
