Student Assessment


Assessment of student learning is an integral part of the district’s educational program. Woodridge 68 uses a variety of formal and informal assessments to determine individual student growth, curriculum and instructional effectiveness, and as an objective measurement of student progress when compared with local, state, and national standards. Information from these assessments is used to guide instructional planning and curriculum & program evaluation.

District assessment reporting (105 ILCS 5/22-82) legislation requires each school district to report information to ISBE concerning the administration of assessments to students at each school. The law also requires schools to make this information public.

Woodridge 68 utilizes the following standardized assessments:

  • Kindergarten Individual Development Survey (KIDS)
  • Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR)
  • Illinois Science Assessment (ISA)
  • Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English State-to-State for English Language Learners (ACCESS)
