New students entering the K-5 online program must complete a grade level assessment before completing their enrollment.
The students are assessed by Kolbe's talented grade-level teachers using our classroom platform, Adobe Connect. This meeting is designed to allow families to interact in our classroom platform and trial the student/teacher interaction, while allowing Kolbe to get to know your student earlier in the process. The goal of these assessments is to ensure the student is on grade level and that their schedule is matched with groups of students with similar learning styles and abilities.
There is no need to prepare; your child will simply arrive at their scheduled time with their assessment in hand. The teacher will welcome them to the Kolbe classroom and guide them in their assessment.
The day before your scheduled assessment appointment, a grade level assessor will reach out to you with the Adobe Connect Room link as well as the PDF assessment for you to print. You will need to have access to a printer and/or scanner, headset, printed assessment, and high-speed internet for your appointment. The assessment cover page will have all needed supplies for your child's grade level meeting.
You may enter the room using a browser (Chrome recommended) or by downloading the Adobe Connect application.
Simply enter as a Guest and enter your full name.
Before the appointment, please be sure to test your microphone with our web conferencing software, Adobe Connect, by using this troubleshooting link. We recommend using a headset and be sure to come prepared with a working webcam!
