Local Assessment in DPS
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 developed, 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. Schools have two opt-in options to support the implementation of this assessment strategy. Opt-out schools must meet the minimum requirements listed above.
