Assessments and Interviews

Assessments and Interviews during the application process :

TCIS carefully reviews all academic records and communicates with the previous school personnel as appropriate. In many cases, additional, pertinent information is not required. There are times, however, when the Admissions Committee does require additional assessments, information, and interviews with the applicant and parents. If additional assessments are required, parents will be expected to facilitate such assessments at their own expense.

The Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) tests intend to reflect the instructional level of each student.  TCIS is using these tests to assess incoming students and to measure growth over time.  The assessment itself is unique in that it adapts to the student’s ability, accurately measuring what a child knows and needs to learn.
