Teaching is the Core: District Assessment Review
Cortland School District’s Assessment Project worked to streamline the number of assessments students take and to ensure that assessments provide feedback about achievement of specific standards-based learning goals. The Assessment Project occurred in two phases.
Phase I: District Assessment Review – Provided the district with information that was used as baseline information in making sure district assessments provided data needed to improve student achievement.
Phase II: Assessment Design Project – Identified areas of professional development to create common understanding on the purpose and uses of assessment.
This report summarizes the district’s efforts in these two phases.
