Assessment in District 102

 

La Grange School District 102 believes students and student learning are much more than just a single score on any one assessment. We strive to ascertain the uniqueness of our students and the strengths and gifts they offer - some of which are not measurable on a test. As educators, we rely on many different types of assessment, both formal and informal, to provide data, information and insight into the learning needs of our students. While we recognize the importance of knowing the whole child, we also hold as our mission to produce college and career ready students with a strong academic foundation. Our assessment program is designed to achieve that end.  
 
Our assessment plan not only helps La Grange School District 102 understand the proficiency of our learners in core areas of the curricula but also helps us to monitor academic progress. We are committed to making certain our students reach their highest academic potential through the use of multiple assessment measurements ranging from teacher created, classroom based assessment through nationally normed state mandates assessments.
