Assessment Information

 

Assessment is aligned to the Standards and assists teachers in determining instructional priorities and modifying the curriculum accordingly. Entry Level Assessments measure a student's prior knowledge so that a teacher can plan instruction to meet the needs of every student. Progress Monitoring Assessments measure student progress daily or weekly to determine if the instruction is supporting learning. And Summative Assessments, at the end of a unit or course, provide specific and detailed information about which Standards have, or have not, been achieved. Assessment data is collected and analyzed by the schools and the district to evaluate the overall effectiveness of the instructional program. Newark also participates in the State Testing and Reporting Program. The Stanford Achievement Test is given to all students in grade two through eleven, and individual student reports are sent home to parents.
