Assessments

What are assessments?

Assessments evaluate students’ abilities and identify what they’ve already mastered and where they still struggle. They pinpoint what students know today so you can screen students to see who is meeting benchmarks, monitor progress toward goals, and plan what to teach next.

Methods of assessment have evolved over the years. Gone are the days of rudimentary grading that doesn’t tell us enough about the skills and abilities of a student.
