BWLS Teacher Assessment Survey

As a district, we believe that the purpose of testing is to drive our instruction. Unfortunately, the amount of testing being mandated by the State of Ohio has increased. This has caused us to want to do an assessment inventory. In this process we will examine all district-level given tests and make decisions about which tests are high quality and necessary for our students to take and which tests can be modified or eliminated. A committee of teachers and administrators will complete the assessment inventory over the next several months and make decisions about which tests to give as a district moving forward.

This survey is an important part of our assessment inventory. Your responses will help shape recommendations for the future of the district’s testing program. Please know that your responses to this survey are confidential. Thank you for taking the time to give your input!
