The goal of assessments is to provide timely and accurate data to support student growth.
Assessments are given during pre-determined windows throughout the school year to monitor student progress. District and statewide assessments help ensure all public school students, no matter where they go to school, receive a quality education. By evaluating data, districts and schools decide which teaching practices and curricula best support student understanding of standards. Assessment results also provide families with valuable information about how well their child is doing and where more help might be needed.
