HES teachers use many resources to determine the progress of our students. Daily work offers a glimpse into how each student is processing and understanding instruction. Homework is given to offer practice for students on new learning and as a means to review old learning. Student work in various computer programs such as Essential Skills, Compass Learning, Success Maker,  Renaissance Learning (AR), Star Reading, Star Math, Larson's Intermediate Math, and educational websites offer students an opportunity to learn and practice. Types of formal assessment include weekly quizzes, end of unit testing, AIMS Web testing, DRA testing, skill checklists, and the use of rubrics.

Parents and students in Kindergarten receive report cards in January and at the end of the year. Third and fourth grade students receive progress reports midway through each Nine Week Period and report cards at the end of the Nine Weeks.

Sample report cards for Kindergarten, First, and Second grades are available below. Third and Fourth grade report cards are computerized. They list teachers, subjects, and numeric grades for the year.
