BP 6141.4 Assessment

KPBSD Policy Manual

BP 6141.4

Instruction
ASSESSMENT

Assessment is the method by which we measure student progress. Sound assessment is an essential ingredient in quality instruction. Multiple assessments are necessary to meet multiple needs and will take place in the classroom, in the building, and at the District level.

The focus of assessment and how it relates to student achievement is based on student acquisition of knowledge, foundation skills, and development of thinking and problem-solving processes.

The purpose of the assessment program is to provide information:

  1. That will benefit parents, educators and students;
  2. That promotes instructional improvement; and
  3. That provides accountability.

The District will develop guidelines that designate which assessments will be administered at designated levels/curriculum areas. These guidelines will describe the K-12 assessment process.
