SD 308 participates in three types of assessments; State, National, and Local. State Assessments are required by the State of Illinois and are to be given to all students who qualify for either the subject or grade. National Assessments are not required by the state, however they are a critical prep for college preparedness and important for all students who qualify to be given the chance to participate. Local Assessments are not required by the State of Illinois. We take great pride in using meaningful local assessments that not only allow us to see your child’s progress throughout the year but to guide daily instruction so that we can maximize learning in the classroom.
