Student Testing & Assessment

The District student assessment program provides information for determining individual student achievement and guidance needs, curriculum and instruction effectiveness, as well as school performance measured against District student learning objectives and statewide norms.

The student assessment program shall be developed under the auspices of the superintendent and his administrative staff and approved by the Board. The program will:

  • Use appropriate assessment methods and instruments. It utilizes norm and criterion-referenced achievement tests, aptitude tests, proficiency tests, and teacher-developed tests.
  • Be uniformly applied to all students required to be tested.
  • Emphasize the code of ethics for test administration.

The office of the superintendent  shall maintain descriptions of the District’s assessment procedures and copies of District-wide instruments.Test results shall be recorded in the student’s temporary school record and are available only to the student, the student’s parent(s)/guardian(s), and school personnel directly involved with the student’s educational program.
