Why This Indicator Matters

We need to be sure that future leaders have the skills required to tackle the problems of tomorrow. Future success in life is directly related to a person's breadth of knowledge and ability to think, learn and communicate. Education plays a primary role in equipping young people with the necessary skills, knowledge and experiences for achievement. School testing programs, such as math and reading assessments, are tools to measure student academic achievement. Just as we need many different gauges, windows and mirrors as drivers, education needs a dashboard approach to assessment to provide multiple ways of monitoring and improving.

Footnotes: In the 2014-15 school year, Delaware’s assessment program was renamed the Delaware System of Student Assessments (DeSSA). DeSSA assessments include Smarter English Language Arts/Literacy (ELA) and Mathematics assessments, also known as Smarter Balanced Assessments.

Due to social distancing and remote learning instituted during the COVID-19 pandemic, Delaware schools have been granted a waiver by the U.S. Department of Education that excuses all students from statewide standardized testing requirements including the Alternate assessment for each of the corresponding content areas and grade levels and excuses all schools from performance ratings for the 2019-2020 school year. USDE also waived the state’s accountability reporting requirement.
