Assessment

The Tiverton School Department values instruction that is personalized, challenging, and tailored to the needs of each student. Across the grade levels, teachers use ongoing, brief  formative assessments to drive and refine instruction to best support each student. Additional summative assessments may include project-based learning, essays, and exams.

Our district engages in universal district-wide benchmarking in the areas of reading and mathematics. All students in grades K-10 are screened with brief, nationally-normed tools that are predictive of school success. Screening results are considered together with student's classwork and other data to determine what personalized supports may be needed for each child. We work hard to personalize supports for each child.

In accordance with federal and state requirements, our students participate in the Rhode Island Comprehensive Assessment System (RICAS) assessments. We also offer the PSAT and SAT each spring to enrolled grade ten and eleven students, respectively, during our school day.

NOTE:
Both the 2018 English Language Arts and the mathematics tests of RICAS will have only two sessions of testing for grades 3-8. Please see the RICAS Assessment page of the RIDE website for more information on the test designs and other new materials,
