Improving the academic achievement of the students within the district is the target. By having an organized assessment system that is aligned to state and district standards and that provides information to parents, administrators, and teachers for the purpose of improving student achievement, this target can be obtained. Greenville ISD currently uses data from a variety of sources: norm-referenced tests, statewide criterion-referenced tests, and locally designed summative assessments in order to measure student learning. Formative and summative assessments are used to evaluate student progress toward mastery of the written curriculum and state assessment goals. Student assessment must provide for the acquisition, analysis, and communication of student achievement data to:
- Guide teachers’ instruction at appropriate levels of depth and challenge.
- Guide students’ learning.
- Guide district/campus improvement of curriculum alignment and programmatic decisions.
- Communicate progress to parents to support learning at home.
District data from formative and summative assessments will be monitored in order to evaluate overall effectiveness and student achievement results.
