7630 – Testing Programs

Testing involves all the evaluative techniques and procedures employed in the school to measure the efficiency of accomplishment of educational objec­tives among its pupils.  Testing programs shall be designed as integral parts of the needs assessment and evaluation programs.  They shall be devel­oped primarily for furnishing needed information to decision makers, includ­ing the Board, administrators, teachers, parents, and students.  The needs of these various users shall be limited to obtaining that information which is needed and useful.

Efforts shall be made to select tests that are reasonably reliable and free of cultural bias or any other form of discrimination.

The Board of Education authorizes the Superintendent and the staff of the district to develop orderly procedures for test selection and adoption, test administration, and the use and dissemination of test results.
