Research and Assessment

Department Owner: 

The Research and Assessment service area coordinates student academic assessment and evaluation efforts in the district. This area supports the administration of district and state assessments and assists in the use of this data in the educational decision-making process. We work in collaboration with the other members of the Department of Teaching and Learning.

Testing Students in Washington State provides information about required state assessments, including Smarter Balanced, Science Measurements of Student Progress (MSP), High School Proficiency Exam and End-of-Course (EOC) Exams.
