9 Weeks Assessments - What are they?

At the conclusion of each 9 weeks there are assessments in every subject. These assessments are identical within the content areas of each grade level. For example, each 7th grade math teacher will give the same 9 weeks assessment.


Assessments will vary. They may be accumulative, unit based, objective, and/or performance based. This gives teachers autonomy in assessment construction, but consistency among grade level teachers. The testing calendar we create ensures no student has more than two tests on a test day.
