Windsor Schools demonstrated an increase in proficiency in literacy and mathematics in six subject and grade cohorts in 2015-16. Three out of the six cohorts had a 10% or more increase in proficiency. Sixth grade Math students for example had 33% proficiency in 2015, with an overall improved cohort average of 46% proficiency in 2016, a net increase of more than a third (13% of 33%).
Standardized assessments provide a lens into the classroom and sheds light on how individual students are performing in content areas, like mathematics and literacy. Content standards, determined by a state or a group of states, outlines what a student should know at the end of each school year.
Although standardized assessments may not capture the whole story behind individual student, or school-wide performance, when aligned to content standards, measured over periods of time, and compared alongside other assessment measures, they do provide extremely valid data.
