Purpose

VISD believes that assessment provides the information necessary to improve student performance and that assessment data should be analyzed for the purpose of setting priorities for instructional decision-making, allocating system resources, and setting accountability goals. Through this work, our department supports the district and campuses in effective school improvement efforts and in developing and monitoring progress that aligns with our district mission and vision.

VISD also believe that assessment data should be reported to students, parents, the community, and the mandated state and federal education authorities for the purpose of building partnerships in education.

The Department of Assessment and Accountability coordinates the administration of state-mandated and district-mandated student assessments. Coordination of student assessments includes training school personnel in test administration, ensuring test security, and assisting with interpretation and use of test results.
