The Assessment Department manages the administration of district, state, and national testing programs for CMSD.
District tests include Benchmark tests for grades 3-8 and NWEA testing for grades 1, 2, 9, and 10.  These district tests serve as both summative and formative assessments.  They are useful to predict how students will perform on the state tests, monitor a student's progress over time, as well as provide instructionally relevant feedback to teachers about their students' skills. 
State tests include the Ohio Graduation Tests (OGT), Ohio Achievement Assessments (OAA), OTELA, Kindergarten Readiness - Literacy (KRA-L), Get It! Got It! Go! pre-school assessment, state diagnostics, 9th grade practice OGT, as well as others.  These tests are required by the state of Ohio and each test has a specific purpose.
National assessments include the National Assessment for Educational Progress (NAEP) which allows Cleveland school district and the state of Ohio to compare student academic proficiency to other cities and states in the country.  The Assessment Department also assists in coordinating the administration of the SAT, PSAT, and ACT which are for students applying to colleges.
