Riverview Gardens Schools: Assessment

The purpose of this page is to have a central location for all assessment resources.

Assessments in the educational community are measurements of student understanding and learning.

The vision of the Assessment Department is to use data effectively in moving students and teachers towards desired outcomes. Modeling the effective use of data begins with embracing evidence-based, peer-reviewed approaches which indicate better results in regards to student performance. Furthermore, it is imperative we make the greatest possible gains with manageable data in promotion of classroom instructional strategies or building logistical decisions by maintaining the clear purpose of assessment is to improve student performance and drive teacher effectiveness.

If you have any questions, comments or recommendations, please reach out to me.
