The teacher monitors the pupils’ progress and the development of their skills on a daily basis. The pupils are also encouraged to evaluate their own working and learning abilities. The purpose of assessment is to motivate the pupils in their work. The results and progress made are not compared to those of other pupils, but to the objectives set for learning.
Information about the pupil’s progress and behaviour is given on a sufficiently frequent basis to the pupils themselves and also to their parents or guardians. At the end of the school year each pupil receives a report card that includes the pupil's curriculum. The report card also includes grades on how well the pupil has achieved the objectives set in different subjects. Numerical grading on the pupil’s behaviour is also given.
Each school can decide whether or not to hand out mid-tearm reports.
The teachers organise individual consultations with the pupil and hhis or her parents or guardians. During these consultations the pupils may present a portfolio of their favourite works from the previous years.
