Do the assessments that we give provide any predictive value to progress towards college and career ready targets (or high stakes assessments) and/or do they provide essential information for teachers to meet the differentiated needs of their students? Is there another purpose that the assessment service should provide? If so, what is it and why? How does the assessment system allow us to identify focus areas & drive towards gap closure?
