Research and assessment coordinates the district’s balanced assessment program and supports teachers and administrators in the use of data to monitor the success of each and every student.

Assessment Program

Standardized Assessments are tests that are given outside of the curriculum and instruction process. They are typically purchased from a test vendor and provide normative comparisons at the national or state level. The timing of the administration of assessments is more closely related to the school year calendar and program decision-making timelines, than to the pacing of the curriculum and instruction in the classroom. They are used to measure student progress toward meeting grade-level standards, predict performance on state accountability tests, triangulate data for program decisions, screen students for remediation or enrichment, and identify relative strengths and weaknesses in district curriculum and instruction practices to inform professional development and curriculum resource decisions.

Standardized Assessment Categories:

Minnesota Accountability Assessments

These tests are mandated by the state and are used to measure student attainment of Minnesota Grade Level Standards, school/district effectiveness and student readiness for MN State College and University courses.

ACCESS

What is the ACCESS assessment?

ACCESS is an English language proficiency assessment based on the Minnesota Standards for English Language Development. This is a state required English Language Proficiency assessment for all students identified as English Learners in grades K-12. There are four language domains assessed in the areas of reading, writing, listening and speaking.

Duration: 
  • Reading: up to 35 minutes
  • Writing: up to 65 minutes
  • Listening: up to 40 minutes
  • Speaking: up to 30 minutes
Results Availability:

Each year, MDE sends paper Individual Student Reports (ISR) to the school district. Once received in the district, ISRs will be distributed during August Back-to-school events or during fall conferences. RPS families can also view their child’s ACCESS scores in Skyward Family Access.

Measures of Academic Progress (NWEA-MAP)

What is the MAP assessment?

Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) are state-aligned computerized adaptive 2-7 interim assessments that measure growth, and accurately inform how educators differentiate instruction, evaluate programs, and structure curriculum. MAP assessments reveal precisely which academic skills and concepts the student has acquired and what they're ready to learn. Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments are administered twice annually to all students in grades K-8 in Math and Reading.

Results Availability

Parent - Guardian Assessment Information

Student Participation in Statewide Assessments
Minnesota Statutes, section 120B.31, subdivision 4a, requires the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) to publish a form for parents/guardians to complete if they refuse to have their student participate in state-required standardized assessments. It includes some basic information to help parents/guardians make informed decisions that benefit their child and their school and community. The form to meet this legislative requirement is available at the link below; it was updated in May 2018. When completed, it must be returned to your student's district; your student’s district may require additional information.
