Teachers use a variety of classroom assessments to monitor student progress and guide instructional practice. Throughout the school year district and state mandated assessments are used to assess student progress toward achieving grade level expectations. The formal, district, or state mandated assessments are highlighted on our assessment pages and intended for educator use and reference.
For the past two years, Cheney School District has been part of the development of a more comprehensive assessment system known as the the Smarter Balanced Assessments. There are THREE types of assessment resources provided by Washington State. Each has a specific focus for informing teachers to support higher student growth. The Reading, Writing, and Mathematics Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) has been replaced by the end of year Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA). Our students and teachers are familiar with this testing format given our involvement with the field test last spring. The Digital Library provides formative assessment supports across grade levels and standards. Interim assessments will be coming online this winter.
