🎥 What does it mean? 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.


screening packet

The Universal Screening Packet documents the screening plan that all of our member districts agree to follow.

What universal screening measures are used in our member districts, during which testing windows (i.e., fall, winter, spring), and in which grade levels?



target packet

The primary purpose of the Target and Rate of Improvement (ROI) Packet is to provide the information that interventionists and special educators need in order to set appropriate goals for students receiving interventions.

This document supports interventions in all learning areas (e.g., academics, SEL, daily living skills).

Measurement Committee

Part of SCRED's collaborative decision making process, the Measurement Committee is a cross-district group of stakeholders who gather together to provide input on decisions regarding what assessments are being administered, when, and to whom. These meetings are also an opportunity to ask and answer assessment-related questions.

There are three meetings throughout the school year, about a week prior to the fall, winter, and spring testing windows, respectively. Principals, curriculum directors, and other key stakeholders (e.g., assessment coordinators) are invited to these meetings.

Here are the group's running agendas:
