Assessment

District 90 uses a variety of measures to chart students' educational progress during their years with us. We use these tests to determine individual student achievement and instructional needs, curriculum and instruction effectiveness, and how school performance compares to District learning objectives and statewide norms.

Keep in mind that no single test can give a full accounting of a child's knowledge and skills. Each test that we use provides one part of the whole picture. Together, the tests may offer patterns and insights to a child's profile and aid our efforts in guiding progress. Click the link below to view the District 90 Assessment Presentation. The District's Assessment Schedule for 2017-18 is also below.
