In the Little Falls School District, information about student learning and the performance of the school district is gathered from a variety of sources, including district and state assessments. Each piece provides a ‘snapshot’ of how well a child is doing. The more ‘snapshots’ that are gathered, the clearer the picture of what a student knows and can do becomes. Teachers, administrators, and parents use assessment results to promote academic success for each and every student in District #482. Information obtained from assessments assists in assessing curricular success, planning continuous improvement, and evaluating district programs.

Minnesota Statutes, section 120B.31, subdivision 4a, student participation requires the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) to publish a form for parents/guardians to complete if they refuse to have their student participate in state-required standardized assessments. The Parent/Guardian Guide to Statewide Testing document provides some basic information to help parents/guardians make informed decisions that benefit their child and their school and community.
