Assessment is essential for student learning. In the classroom, assessments may take a traditional format---such as tests, quizzes, or homework---or other forms such as presentations, portfolios, or concerts. Teachers use information from assessment to make decisions about instruction. Students use feedback on their performance to set learning goals.
In our district, we use a combination of teacher-developed and externally-developed assessments to inform our progress and determine next steps in planning. To learn more about student performance on state assessments, please visit our Report Card
