Dist. 64 plans to focus its attention on at least two areas of testing that need improvement."Grade five reading needs to continue to be a target area for the district," Sorensen wrote.
In September, the school district sponsored a workshop for principals to learn different techniques for analyzing ISAT data.Dist.64 also shares information between schools that could help improve general curriculum standards.
Sorensen also pointed out that the ISAT is only one of many tools that Dist.64 uses in formulating student profiles, and that other types of formal and informal assessment are used as well.
