• Medford School District Assessment Philosophy

    Our assessment program is aligned to standards, uses multiple data sources, is embedded in instruction, and deliberately involves students in relevant and authentic experiences. 

    Our assessment system is constructed with the learning destination in mind, designed to encourage, motivate, and challenge students with a focus on growth. 

    An exemplary assessment system positively impacts student motivation; creates an environment that nurtures intellectual risk-taking; cultivates a feeling of being valued; promotes confidence, hope, and a healthy attitude toward learning; and informs the student of progress toward specific learning goals.
