Assessments and Grading

Our district is committed to providing the best possible education for every student.

Tests and assessments are given for different reasons, depending on the need. Some tests given at SoWashCo Schools are required by federal and/or state law. Others help measure: 

  • English language proficiency
  • Progress toward a learning goal
  • Progress made during a period of time
  • Impact of instruction

Some tests also help determine if students will be selected to participate in educational programs or services. 

One test cannot fill all of these needs.
