Agenda Plus
School Board of Clay County
October 19, 2017 - School Board Special Meeting
2017-2018 Assessment Calendar

Per Rule 6A-1.094224, F.A.C., districts must add their district information to the uniform assessment calendar for the following year (i.e., 2017–18), submit the calendar for district school board approval, and then publish the approved, populated uniform assessment calendar on the district’s website and submit it to the department by October 1.


Gap Analysis

Achieve3000 and i-Ready’s use as progress monitoring help to reduce the number of “extra” assessments that students take, because students would be required to take these assessments before they are able to use the program for instructional goals. Performance Matters tests are only used in key FSA/NGSSS tested courses as progressing monitoring to guide instruction and ensure student success on state mandated assessments.

Previous Outcomes

The board approved the 2016-2017 Uniform Statewide Assessment Calendar on September 15, 2016.

Expected Outcomes

Approval of this agenda item will satisfy the district's obligations to approve a uniform assessment calendar to submit to the state.

Strategic Plan Goal

Teachers and students will use data to inform teaching and learning.

  • Students take NGSSS/Common Core aligned diagnostic assessments at the beginning of the school year, mid-year and at the end of the year to measure progress toward mastery in reading, mathematics (including Algebra 1 and Geometry) and Science (including Biology).

  • District and school employees are trained to use Performance Matters to collect and analyze data by achievement levels and subgroup from formative and summative assessments.

  • District and school employees use Performance Matters to evaluate program and instructional effectiveness.

  • District and school employees use Performance Matters to analyze student performance by reporting category and benchmark to guide instruction.

  • Teachers select strategies that are focused on instructional needs.

  • The district implements end-of-course exams as required by the FLDOE.
