• Delaware Mathematics Assessment

    Assessments are an integral part of the instructional cycle and fulfill 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.

    Delaware’s mathematics assessment helps students, families and teachers determine each student’s strengths and areas for growth on the state's standards for math. This assessment is just one measure for determining your child’s progress in school. Other measures include your child's grades, classroom assignments, district-wide tests and more.

    Delaware teachers helped to develop Smarter’s mathematics assessment. The Smarter Balanced Assessment System has three components: summative assessments, designed for accountability purposes; interim assessments, designed to support teaching and learning throughout the year; and formative assessment processes, supported by professional learning and instructional resources in the Digital Library.
