The Assessment department of Walla Walla Public Schools, in conjunction with the Teachning and Learning department, coordinates assessment and evaluation efforts in the district.  We are committed to using assessment data from multiple sources to assure student learning and to modify our instructional programs. The administration of classroom, district, and state assessments provides data for the educational data-driven decision-making process.

Three overarching goals guide the assessment practices in Walla Walla Public Schools:

  1. Our assessments will assess and monitor student progress and achievement over time while using multiple measures.
  2. Our assessments will guide staff to Identify the needs of individual students:
    • To ensure appropriate program placement, and
    • To ensure appropriate interventions.
  3. Our assessments will be used to determine the effectiveness of instructional programs and to make modifications where appropriate.
