Standardized Assessments
Standardized Assessments are used to evaluate students and schools, to help improve teaching and learning, and to generate important data from which policy decisions can be made. Standardized test results often play a role in shaping public perceptions about the performance of our students and the quality of our schools. However, they are only one of the tools needed to measure student progress.

Standardized assessments are secure tests administered to large groups of students for the purpose of measuring academic ability or achievement. In Geneva, standardized assessments fall into two major categories: State Assessment and Local Assessments. Even though local assessments may be used to measure student growth against their peers, many are also nationally normed and can provide a broader comparison.
