District Standards Based Assessments & Essential Outcomes
District Standards Based Assessments
District Standards Based Assessments are formative and summative assessments that are created at the district level based on state standards. District Standards Based Assessments assess the Essential Outcomes that students must master in order to be successful in the next unit, course, or grade level.
Essential Outcomes are prioritized learning outcomes that are absolutely essential for ALL students to know and be able to do, that can be assessed using formative and summative assessments.
Essential Outcomes have endurance, leverage, and provide readiness for the next level. Endurance is expecting the student to retain the knowledge and skills over time. Leverage means proficiency on this Essential Outcome will help the student in other core areas and academic disciplines. Readiness means that the knowledge and skills are essential for success in the next unit, course, or grade level.
