About Assessment & Testing
Allen ISD believes that assessment provides the information necessary to improve student performance. Assessing student performance is an integral part of the instructional process as it allows professional staff to make informed decisions, set priorities, allocate resources, and be accountable to students, parents, and the community. It is also a method by which state and federal education authorities determine the district’s progress and effectiveness.
A variety of assessment techniques are utilized in Allen ISD in order to capture both the breadth and depth of student learning over time. Allen ISD Assessment is committed to providing training, processes, and information that will enable campuses to smoothly implement required assessments and teachers to effectively utilize assessment data in order to improve student learning.
