Testing and Assessments
Why assess students in a variety of ways?
Assessment in the South Kitsap School District includes a variety of measures intended to provide snapshots of what students know and are able to do. Each measure helps inform decisions about future learning goals. Together these snapshots create an album. This assessment album helps parents, staff, and students make decisions for future learning. These assessments also provide evidence of the progress our students are making toward the South Kitsap School District’s academic goals and Washington State’s Essential Academic Learning Requirements (EALR's).
