Data and Assessment

  • Belief Statement

    We believe that thoughtful assessment is fundamental to the process of learning.

    Effective Assessment:

    • Allows students to demonstrate understanding, knowledge, and ability to apply their learning
    • Promotes student ownership of learning
    • Informs students, teachers, and parents on individual student growth and proficiency
    • Aligns with district adopted standards, curricula, and instruction
    • Guides teachers to tailor and adjust instruction in response to the needs of students
    • Relies on a variety of formats
    • Measures the effectiveness of curricula, instruction, courses, and/or programs in the district
    • Is an ongoing process that encourages reflection on best practices
