DoDEA Comprehensive Assessment System Matrix

The DoDEA Comprehensive Assessment System includes all of the assessments that are administered system-wide within DoDEA. This assessment system is a critical component of CCRS implementation as it provides us with the information about how well our students understand the rigorous standards that are taught in daily lessons. It allows teachers to gain knowledge of students’ skills and mastery of content so that they can support them in their preparation for college and career. Students benefit as teachers use assessments to develop data-informed lessons that meet each student’s academic and developmental needs.
