Using data to guide decision-making is essential to providing students with what they need to continue to grow and learn. It is important to consider the appropriateness of the assessment tools, cost, technology needs, training, validity, purpose, use and how information will be reported. Assessment tools need to provide timely, reliable actionable and appropriate information to inform decisions related to students who are falling behind and students who may benefit from accelerated learning opportunities.
