The Griffin Spalding County School System administers a balanced assessment program with a combination of standardized tests and classroom assessments. These assessments provide staff with a more accurate picture of a student’s overall academic achievement level. Our department assists schools in this area by providing support to help administrators, teachers, and parents understand assessment results. The data obtained from the assessments help schools make informed decisions regarding instruction and support continuous improvement and excellence for all students.
The Georgia Student Assessment Program is used to measure student achievement on the state-adopted content standards and increase efforts to improve teaching and learning. Results of the assessment program are utilized to support students in achieving mastery of content, to provide teachers with feedback about instructional practice and to assist schools in identifying strengths and weaknesses in order to establish priorities in planning educational programs.
