Assessments Overview

  • About Us

    The Assessment team supports student goal achievement by designing, implementing, and promoting systems to get reliable data that supports data informed instructional decision-making so that students can reach their graduation goals.

    How We Serve  

    The Assessment team works with schools and other central administration teams to build a balanced and efficient system of assessment. Our systems incorporate state required and district selected assessments that educators can use to measure student learning and identify interventions to prepare each student for their future after high school. Within these systems, our goal is to translate the language of compliance into a streamlined, practical process of assessment designed to meet student goals.  

    Reliable student testing: Getting good data

    Our team builds a cohesive system of assessment in support of educators and in compliance with administration protocols. Ensuring our efforts reflect accountability guidelines, we deploy efficient training opportunities, offer comprehensive resources and support, and guide formative and summative assessment practices to build a wholistic picture of student learning.  

    Data-informed instructional decisions: Applying the data 

    Our team compiles and submits state required reports in collaboration with other central administration teams to ensure our data collection and progress monitoring tools are capturing necessary details. These reports are often pivotal for building leaders to quantify goals and track progress across school years. We collaborate with our district Research team to provide building leaders with access to intuitive data dashboards displaying student assessment scores so they can make informed decisions. Finally, we empower students and families to take ownership of their learning and growth by supporting family access to assessment scores. 

    Graduation Pathways  Governance: Supporting student graduation goals 

    Our team monitors legislative activity, communicates changes to state rules affecting graduation requirements, and supports high school administrators and counselors in their commitment to helping students reach their graduation goals.  

    Secondary Functions  

    Our team stays up-to-date on the latest resources to provide assessment professional development and support opportunities throughout the year. We also manage assessment delivery and reporting systems.
