The Department of Assessment has two primary roles within Clovis Unified School District. The Department oversees the distribution, administration, collection, and security of all state and district mandated assessments. To this end, the department coordinates the training of test coordinators and administrators, prepares assessment materials, and facilitates the transfer of assessment information between Clovis Unified and the state.
The second role of this department is to provide schools, district offices, and the community with analysis and interpretation of the results from the various assessments administered district wide. Staff gathers and analyzes data, providing crucial information on student performance and issues of educational quality in Clovis Unified School District.
Furthermore, data analysis and interpretation provided by this department are used to strengthen decision-making for the Superintendent, the School Board, and district and school-based administrators.
