Assessments and Testing

We check your child’s progress in many ways. Teachers watch how your child is doing in class and your child will also take a variety of tests. Tests range from elementary skill tests that take a few minutes to annual state tests that take several hours.

No single test can tell us how your child is doing. Each test your child takes helps us to understand his/her skills and needs. Altogether, the results help you and your child's teacher ensure that your child 's instructional needs are being met.

Your child may be required to take some state tests before he or she can graduate. Check the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction’s testing page to see what the state requires.
