Assessment

Standards Based Progress Reports inform parents of how their children are doing at certain points in the year in meeting the standards for their grade level in Mathematics, English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science. These reports at the K-5 are available to view January and June.

Star Benchmark Assessments are short diagnostic assessments that students take in September, January, and May to see growth across the school year for reading and math. This allows both teachers and parents to see what skills and knowledge students start the school year with as well as what skills and knowledge they have gained. The estimated time to take these assessments in a given year is 3 hours.
