District Assessment Instructions

2016 - 2017

District Assessments will be given paper/pencil this year to accommodate the process of learning how to use Illuminate. All teachers using district assessments will be required to use Illuminate for managing student data and progress.

Below is an outline of the process:

  • Teachers will receive test booklets and student answer booklets (used for extended response style questions) via the Teaching and Learning Department.

  • Teachers will need to print bubble sheets for the assessment they are administering through Illuminate.

  • Teachers will access and/or print answer keys for their assessments through Illuminate.

  • Teachers will administer the assessments and collect the materials.

    • Do not allow students to write on the Science or Social Studies tests. They can write on the answer booklets and bubble sheets.

    • Students will write directly on Math tests and bubble sheets where necessary. 

    • Plan on reusing the tests for mid-year and end of year administration.

  • Teachers will grade the short answer and extended response questions and bubble in the corresponding score on each students bubble sheet.

  • Teachers will scan in bubble sheets for their assessment into Illuminate.

  • Teachers will use data from the assessments to generate SLO’s and to guide instruction for their classes.

The Teaching and Learning Department along with the Literacy and Math Coaches are here to support teachers with the use of Illuminate in this process. Teachers should contact the coaches and supervisors in their building when seeking assistance.
