Assessment: Measuring Student Success

Assessments are an important part of our district’s plan to ensure high levels of learning for all students, and preparation for college-level coursework and 21st century careers. 
Though tests may be the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word assessment, there is a wide range of methods that educators use to evaluate each student’s academic abilities, social-emotional development and personal growth as an individual. 

Hannibal students participate in state, district, and classroom assessments. The CIA department reviews overall assessment data publicly with the Board of Education each September. 

Why We Assess Students

Like class assignments and report cards, assessments provide information to schools, teachers, and families about student progress toward mastery of grade-level or course learning goals. 

In addition to measuring individual student growth, all of these assessment tools play an important role in measuring collective student performance and growth as well. This gives our district valuable data we can use to make decisions about curriculum and instruction, and identity areas of strength and opportunities for growth.
