Assessment in District 35
Assessment within our Schools:
Within the Glencoe Schools we use a combination of formative and summative assessment options to consider student strengths and areas for continued growth. We believe strongly in the role of the classroom teacher to gather ongoing assessment information in combination with more formal measures of assessment. In order to identify significant patterns of growth or achievement discrepancies, district teams will establish baselines for all data sources so that progress can be analyzed over time. Data will be analyzed by teams and considered with respect to student progress and need for interventions. District teams will share successful practices and strategies to support growth for our students.
