Assessment is the systematic collection of data about student learning based on standards and the use of that data to create a continuous cycle of improved teaching and learning.  In order to inform instruction, measure student learning and close achievement gaps, Dysart endorses the use of diverse classroom assessment data, such as formative, summative, performance based, portfolio and student observations. Results are used in conjunction with district, state and national assessment data to form a  picture of student learning.
