New frontiers in assessment
Our admissions committee process has long been focused on understanding applicants on inter-personal, intra-personal, and cognitive ways. Through this understanding we are able to successfully “build classes” that are cohesive and representative of all of the diversities that the applicant pool represents. In our effort to continuously enhance our process and to remain on the cutting edge of assessment, I just travelled to Princeton, NJ to consummate our participation in an exciting research study.
We are proud to announce that Lakeside School is part of a pilot group of 32 independent schools, assisting the Secondary School Admission Test Board (SSATB) in the ground-breaking development of a new non-cognitive assessment.  Intended to complement the cognitive measures currently assessed in our admission process, the new Character Skills Assessment (CSA) from SSATB will offer insights into an applicant’s character attributes and add great value to the holistic evaluation of applicants embraced by LakesideCurrently in the research phase, the CSA will be implemented in the 2017-2018 admission season.  Look for updates on the development of this exciting tool in the coming year!
