The primary goal of the office of Assessment and Accountability is to assist DPISD campuses in improving student performance. In order to meet this goal, we collaborate with other members of the DPISD Department of Instruction to format, print, distribute and score state released assessments as well as locally developed diagnostic tests, curriculum based assessments (CBA’s), and benchmark tests. Data produced from these assessments are analyzed for the purpose of assessing the effectiveness of DPISD curriculum and instruction.
Data from STAAR testing is used to evaluate each student’s readiness for the next grade/course or for postsecondary education and to further evaluate the effectiveness of DPISD curriculum and instruction. It is also used to determine state and federal accountability ratings under the state accountability and the federal accountability system, or AYP (Adequate Yearly Progress).
Assessments required by the state and federal governments include:
Students who entered Grade 9 in Fall 2012 or later will graduate under STAAR testing requirements.
