Every 9 weeks, GT students give themselves a self evaluation. The students score themselves on their classwork, their thinking and their behavior. Students also make a comment on something that they would like to improve and something they felt proud about during the 9 week period. The GT Specialist also evaluates each student in Grades 1-5 each nine weeks on their classwork, thinking and behavior giving comments about teacher observation and goal setting for the 9 week grading period. A copy of the progress report is placed in the student's Gifted & Talented file in the GT classroom, a copy is sent home in the Thursday folder and a copy is given to the student's classroom teacher.
