The Assessment, Research, and Evaluation Department is responsible for facilitating the adherence to, and use of, assessments at a state and local level. Once results are available, A.R.E. is also responsible for distributing the subsequent data received from these assessments to the appropriate stakeholders. 

These assessments can be broken into three general categories:

1. State Mandated: including CAASPP, ELPAC, and PFT

2. Optional: including SAT/ACT, CHSPE, NAEP, 

3. Local: including curriculum embedded assessments for most courses

A brief overview, as well as links to further information, for each of these assessments can be found below.
