7. Assessments are useful to teachers and students.

7.1. TEACHERS: Teachers use assessment to keep track of student progress so that they can adjust instruction based on student needs. Teachers also use assessment to see how well they have been teaching their students and how well their students have mastered what they have taught. Keeping track of assessment data plays a huge role in a teacher's day-to-day plans and routines.

7.2. STUDENTS: Students use data to keep track of their own progress, to create portfolios, and to show how well they have mastered a standard in a content area. Their performance on assessments allows their teachers to see where they still need improvement and where they are fine.

8. Assessment Data

8.1. This data is based on the last unit test taken by these students: Student 1: 53 Student 2: 46 Student 3: 62 Strategies that have been implemented are more small group time so that we can gather more data from formative assessments like exit tickets to check progress. Students are also doing KWL charts collaboratively with the teacher so she can figure out where to start with intervention with them.
