Statewide assessments in core subjects are aligned to these standards to ensure that students are achieving the learning goals.

Chalk Talk: Types of Assessments
One of the realities of American education is testing, and many people would suggest that there is too much testing in the schools. In any event, there will always be some amount of testing and the important thing to remember is the goal of the assessment given to a student. There are different types of tests which serve different purposes; for instance, an end of year exam serves to ensure a student has learned the material they have been taught. A project based assessment has a different goal of being a learning experience for the student as well as a source of assessment. Some tests serve as a baseline, such as tests given early in the school year, and help instructors guide their lesson planning and target instruction based on the results of the assessment. By understanding the role of the test, pressure can be taken off students because they will see that not all tests are high stakes and have purposes beyond gauging their academic success.
