Assessments & Tests

Curriculum, instruction, and assessment work together to support student learning. Students are provided with opportunities to learn the skills, concepts, and work-study practices necessary to graduate from high school, go on to college/career, and become productive citizens.

Assessments measure student progress toward the Colorado Academic Standards, help teachers identify each student's instructional needs, and inform parents about what and how their child is learning. The assessments also help to gauge how well schools in Jeffco are supporting the achievement and growth of all students in the district. Calendars showing assessments are available for grades PK-5 and grades 6-12. 

Some assessments are required by federal and/or state law. Information regarding state assessment participation and excusal can be found here. Individual schools determine which additional, optional assessments can best help their specific student population to learn and grow.

For more information about assessments, talk with your child's teacher or school principal, or contact the Assessment and Research Department (303-982-6565). Information about Jeffco Public Schools' performance may also be found in the annual report to the community, on each school's website and on the Colorado Department of Education's SchoolView website.
