Testing, Data Assessment and Accountability
“The very best performers do not move on before they have scrutinized
and understood the factors underpinning their success.”
Jones, G. “How the Best of the Best Get Better and Better” Harvard Business Review, June 2008.
Livingston Public Schools believes that assessment is an integral component of good teaching and essential to understanding student learning. From the embedded formative assessments that every teacher uses daily to the structure of standardized assessments, it is our philosophy that gathering and analyzing these data help us to continually improve our work of teaching and learning.
In accordance with N.J.S.A. 18A:L7C-6.6, please be advised that the calendar below informs you of the State assessments or commercially-developed standardized assessment that will be administered to LPS students in the 2016-2017 school year.
