System-wide data is used in monitoring student achievement and evaluating system-wide progress toward the goals of the DoDEA Community Strategic Plan. One of the most common types of assessment used in schools is the standardized test. Standardized tests are always administered with the same directions/time limits, and they are always scored the same way to ensure fairness for all students. Standardized testing results are used by educators to help improve teaching and learning and to evaluate programs and schools, as well as to generate the data on which policy decisions are made.

Both norm-referenced and criterion-referenced achievement tests are administered in DoDEA. In addition to promoting accountability, these assessments of student achievement provide valuable data that can be analyzed to:

  • Improve instruction
  • Measure program success and effectiveness
  • Guide curriculum development and revision.
