Comprehensive Assessment Plan

  • The schools of the Essex Westford School District use multiple types of assessments to evaluate student learning including assessments, portfolios, projects, performances and exhibitions.  These measures include formative assessments, which are designed to provide an opportunity for students to practice learning and which inform the teacher's instruction, and summative assessments, which are  designed to evaluate the student's mastery of specific learning goals.  

    Our full Comprehensive Local Assessment Plan includes common local and state assessments.
