It is around this time of year - the second and third weeks of school - that Shorecrest teachers begin to conduct formal types of assessments for literacy (reading, writing and spelling) and math. The assessments are to help teachers learn more about each student -- not only their level, but what they know, how they learn, and what their needs are at this point in time.
