Student assessments drive instruction


Teachers are constantly assessing student performance and achievement. Questions are continually asked.

Are students where we want them to be? Are they understanding the content? Are they making appropriate gains? Will they meet state benchmarks? Should modifications be made to instruction or curriculum?

In a balanced assessment system, both summative and formative assessments are an integral part of gathering information that leads to instructional decisions.
