Below are state and national assessments that your child may take based on their grade level one time per year. Students won't take all the assessments listed here, as they might only be given to certain grade levels, student groups, or only during some years. In addition, students will take classroom-based assessments, and elementary and middle schools have school-wide assessments in order to inform intervention, differentiation and more.
