The school year in Moshi started off strong in January and we have been busy throughout the last quarter.
Initial Testing and Evaluation of 2021 Cohort
In the months of February and March, Toa tutors observed and tested all 1,052 Standard One students in each of our 11 partner schools. These tests help us determine who needs extra support from Toa tutors in order to progress satisfactorily with their education. We categorize students into three tiers:
Tier 1 (Developing and progressing as expected): 438 students
Tier 2 (Lagging slightly behind peers): 275 students
Tier 3 (Require the most serious intervention): 339 students
With this information, we will spend the rest of the school year supporting the 614 students in tiers 1 and 2 in order to help them reach their full potential. Our support will include pull-out tutoring, referral to special services, and medical referrals.
Final testing and Evaluation of 2020 Cohort
Once the last year’s cohort enters Standard Two, Toa tutors always complete a third and final round of testing to determine the progress our students made as well as whether any students need further support. Out of 355 students tested from the 2020 cohort, there were 7 tier two and 18 tier three students. This is an amazing accomplishment. We are so proud of our students for their hard work and our tutors for their unending support!
