Student Assessment

  • The Oregon School District agrees with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction's statement that well-constructed assessment systems lead to better learning outcomes for students. The OSD asessment system is based on five critical beliefs:

    • The most valuable assessment is formative and drives the teaching and learning process 
    • Benchmark or interim assessments (e.g., STAR, MAP) allow teachers and learners to track growth and progress over time
    • Summative assessments (e.g. Forward, Aspire, ACT) provide snapshots of learner progress and inform OSD cirriculum/instructional strategy choices  
    • Mutliple data points are reviewed when making instructional decisions 
    • All children are so much more than their assessment scores - we strive to know our learners as individuals and consider the whole child when making instructional decisions
