State Testing Moving Forward in Indiana
In order to stay well informed and meet student needs, IDOE plans to administer state- and federally-mandated assessments this Spring. Learning systems have significantly changed over the last 10 months due to the pandemic. Assessment data will help stakeholders understand the impact of these challenges to student learning. Please review the attached flyer for more information.
From the Indiana Department of Education:
What is an Assessment Literate Individual?
Assessment literacy includes three big ideas: What someone knows about assessment, what someone believes about assessment, and what someone does with assessment.
An Assessment Literate Individual:
- Understands the types and purposes of assessment;
- Believes that assessment is an essential part of teaching and learning;
- Utilizes data to drive informed decision-making for the success of every child.
Who should be Assessment Literate?
A wide variety of stakeholders should understand key aspects of assessment for informed decision-making. These stakeholders include:
- Community Members
Each role has an important part in assessment: from participating in assessment, to creating assessments, to understanding and using assessment data for important decision-making.
