Assessment & Accountability

The mission of the assessment and accountability department is to support teachers, principals and District administrators in the use of data for instructional improvement. 

Assessments are used as one part of a larger framework for teaching and learning. They are used to measure how much students have learned over a period of time (called assessment of learning). Assessments are also used to find out what students do or do not know (called assessment for learning).

Assessments for learning and of learning are used together to get an adequate picture of students’ progress throughout their time with RUSD. This is called a balanced assessment system.
