Student Assessments

  • Students within the Sparta School District participate in a variety of assessments throughout the school year, both in-house and standardized, all intended to measure students' growth and progress.  These assessments come in a variety of forms: formative, summative, and benchmark.  

    In house, our students will work through a variety of assessment options, including formal exams, essays, labs, problem-based learning, authentic assessment, quizzes, etc.

    Standardized testing will include the PARCC assessment for our students in grades 3 through 11.  Students in grades K-8 will participate in the MAP assessment, which is a standardized assessment used in-house to gauge individual and class progress towards meeting the standards.  Students at the high school will participate in the End of Course Biology Exam.  Additionally, all students enrolled in our Advanced Placement courses at the high school are expected to sit for the AP exam.

    The 2017-18 Sparta School District Assessment Calendar will be available soon.
    2017-18 District Assessment Schedule will be available soon.
