The following resources are intended to enhance our school community’s knowledge of assessment literacy.  In turn, the Accountability, Research, & Evaluation department hopes to increase the quality of data to better provide instruction that will improve student outcomes.

Assessment Resources

Our goal is that all schools have a sound formative assessment process in place by which they frequently monitor student progress in relation to grade level skills and standards and adjust instruction accordingly.

Schools are required to administer a commonly develop medium-scale, medium-cycle assessment, a pre-built interim assessment or a computer adaptive assessment in literacy and math to all students in grades 3-8, at their enrolled grade-level, three times per year.
