• Overview of Assessments

    Assessments are an essential part of education. For the individual student, assessments measure a student’s skills and progress towards learning goals.  For teachers and school administrators, assessments inform instruction and guide decisions about student needs and curriculum effectiveness.  For the district administrators and state government, assessments determine whether our district is meeting its academic goals.  

    There are several assessments administered to students in Amphitheater Public Schools. Each assessment is slightly different; creating multiple measures of student and school success.  Please take a moment to browse the list of assessments on the left, and if you have questions, contact our State Assessment and Data Analysis department.
