     Assessments in the Sunnyvale School District 

    The Sunnyvale School District utilizes a range of assessment strategies to gain a full, detailed view of student progress toward Board of Education established standards of expected achievement.  Testing is a valuable educational tool for student assessment and program evaluation. It is important, however, to remember that test data is only one snapshot in the total performance picture for a student, grade level, school, or district.
