These assessments furnish important information about your child’s progress and help us better support them in their journey to college. Data from these assessments:

  • Determine how students are currently performing on state and national standards
  • Measure student growth and progress from year to year
  • Identify students’ strengths and areas for additional focus so that teachers can adjust instruction

The first round Common Assessments will be November 12th and 13th in all core subjects.
