Assessments in District 65
Lake Bluff School District 65 has adopted a balanced assessment philosophy. A balanced assessment system is the strategic use of assessment that informs decisions at the classroom, school, and district levels. A balanced assessment system is composed of formative, interim, and summative assessments.
The most common assessments are those that are ongoing in our classrooms on an everyday basis - formative assessments. Formative assessment is a process used by teachers and students during instruction that provides feedback to adjust ongoing teaching and learning to improve students’ achievement of intended instructional outcomes. Examples of formative assessments in District 65 include:
- Fountas and Pinnell assessments
- Pre-tests and post-tests
- Questions and answers during regular lessons
- NWEA/ MAP Assessments
