In order to measure student progress on a more regular basis Rochester School District will be assessing all students in the areas of Reading and Math using nationally normed tests.
AIMSweb Assessments will be used in grades K-8.
Measurement of Academic Progress or MAPS will be used in grades 9-12.
The use of these assessments will allow teachers, administrators and parents to make more informed decisions about a students academic needs. The assessments will be given in the fall, winter and spring. In grades K-8 additional assessments may be needed if students are in need of extra help.
The additional data provided by these assessments should allow the classroom teachers to make adjustments and differentiate curriculum based on students needs and grade level abilities.
If you have any questions about the local assessments please call or email.
