Summary of Benchmark Assessment Initiative
The second vision statement in the district Strategic Plan states that "data from multiple and varied assessments are used to improve student learning." One of the related goals focuses on the development of benchmark assessments. Recently, ATI Galileo was selected as the district online assessment tool. Galileo is a comprehensive assessment system that will allow teachers to quickly identify which standards students have met and those students still need help attaining. The initial implementation is planned for 2012. Training is scheduled for the week of February 27th, 2012.
