Philosophy of Assessment
Assessment is an ongoing process of evaluating, measuring, and documenting student learning of state and national standards. While commonly equated with tests, teachers use a variety of tools and methods to determine understanding and content mastery in all subjects taught. Assessments provide information that can be used to direct instruction and improve learning programs. In Rochester Catholic Schools, meaningful effective assessments are used to support and improve student learning in several different ways.
