On the 18th & 19th, November 2022 RMCC Professionals conducted a FREE assessment camp for students from Grade 1 to Grade 8. The purpose of this assessment was to know whether the child’s reading and spelling age were age-appropriate. To measure them accurately, it was done through a standardized assessment test called Schonel’s Reading & Spelling test. Reading and Spelling are the basic level foundational skills for students. If these skill sets are not developed in an age appropriate manner, students can have age gaps in learning which can hamper their academic growth and their self esteem.
After the camp was conducted, reports were made and explained to the parents whether their ward’s Reading & Spelling Age were :
- 1) About grade level of grade.
- 2) Grade level of their chronological age & grade.
- 3) Below grade level of their chronological age & grade.
The counselors and special educators made additional observations during the sessions. An individual session was conducted with the parent to understand the academic difficulties faced by the child. The reports were explained in detail to the parents and they were given recommendations based on the age gaps identified.
The parents thanked the RMCC team for the initiative and provided positive feedback for the same.
