Assessment is the process of gathering evidence aligned to a specific purpose to be used in making educational decisions that improve the learning conditions for all students. A variety of assessment types and tools are used within the education system (classroom, school district, statewide), and the results should be used according to the intended purpose and the level of specificity of the information produced. Together, information from each system layer and assessment type describes the learning outcomes in relation to the defined expectations for all students. Assessments must be designed and validated for specific purposes.
