Our goal is that all schools have a sound formative assessment process in place by which they frequently monitor student progress in relation to grade level skills and standards and adjust instruction accordingly.
Schools are required to administer a commonly developed, medium-scale, medium-cycle assessment, a pre-built interim assessment or a computer adaptive assessment in literacy and math to all students in grades 3-8, at their enrolled grade-level, two times per year; for grades 6-8, it is three times per year. To allow schools the flexibility and autonomy to meet the needs of their unique school population, school leaders are able to select their local assessment platform. Schools have two opt-in options to support the implementation of this assessment strategy. Opt-out schools must meet the minimum requirements listed above.
