Teaching, Learning & Equity - Assessments


    “...The primary purpose of assessment is to improve and be accountable for student learning by providing stakeholders with the information needed for continuous improvement on Board-adopted academic standards and curricular objectives. In addition, assessment information assists teachers, instructional administrators, the Board of Education, and the community in understanding the quality of education in the School District of Beloit as it relates to student growth and achievement.”

    Excerpt from BOE Policy 346

Formative and Summative Assessments

  • Formative & Summative Assessment

    The strategic use of formative, interim, and summative assessments drives the teaching and learning process toward improved student outcomes. The purposeful alignment of these assessment types, their use in data inquiry cycles, and continuous improvement efforts at the student, school, and district levels, are at the heart of strategic assessment systems.
