Open Access Graduate Research Paper


Every elementary teacher must evaluate the progress of each individual in the classroom. The ultimate question becomes: Has this child gained the appropriate knowledge and mastered the designated skills to succeed in the next grade in school? In most cases the teacher determines with confidence that the individual has adequately mastered the expected competencies. Occasionally, though, the question is more difficult to answer and the teacher is confronted with the dilemma of determining what course of action will be in the best interest of a child who does not appear to have reached the expected level of achievement. Such a child must be considered for grade repetition.
