3.1 Purpose

Schools and districts use diagnostic and assessment data to determine the learning needs for students. The assessment data demonstrates the need for a student to receive supportive or enrichment activities. The school personnel use the data to discover the strength or need for change of the instructional materials and programs.

Each school district and chartered nonpublic school must adopt an assessment system that aligns to their coursework and includes regular assessments of student performance; supports students at-risk of failure; meets the guidance implementing Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA); qualifies students for graduation, promotions or special programs; and informs parents and students of academic progress. The assessment system must include professional development to support the effectiveness of staff using the assessment results. College preparation and national standardized assessments are included to go beyond the statewide assessments in measuring student progress.
