Assessment

Purposes of Assessment
In District 75, the Comprehensive Assessment Plan reflects an ongoing process of gathering data on what students know and are able to do. Assessments provide information for:
  • Determination of growth and mastery
  • Instructional needs
  • Program effectiveness
  • Resource and professional development needs
  • Targets for areas of improvement
 
Types of Assessments
District 75 uses two types of assessments. Summative assessments tell us how much students have learned at a particular point in time. Formative assessments answer the question, “How should instruction be designed and adjusted based on the concepts students have mastered?”
