Welcome to the State of Delaware Assessment page.  This site is maintained by Delaware's Office of Assessment workgroup and provides information and resources about the Delaware System of Student Assessment (DeSSA). 

Assessment is an integral part of the instructional cycle and fulfills several purposes for educators, students, parents, policy makers, and community members. Assessments administered at the state, district/charter, and school levels combine to form a system of assessments with the goal of supporting student growth.

Our goal is to assist districts and charter schools throughout Delaware in their mission to prepare students for their college and career goals after high-school.
