The District and its schools review test data and classroom assessments
annually to identify teaching strategies and staff development that will
continuously improve student achievement at all grade levels.
The Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) is the state's assessment in grades
3-8 for reading, mathematics, science and writing. The MSP, aligned to
Washington's learning standards, is designed to inform families, students, and
educators of academic progress made over time. The majority of grades and
content areas are available to students via an online assessment delivery
system. More on state testing in
About Online Delivery
In spring 2012, Washington continues to transition its assessment program from
paper/pencil to online delivery. This year, the majority of Central Kitsap
students in grade 5 through 8 reading and math and grades 5 and 8 science will
test online. A quarter of Central Kitsap’s grade 3 students and almost half of
students in grade 4 will test reading and math online. During the next three
years, online testing will include increasing percentages of participating
students. The software and delivery system for online testing is being provided
by the state's testing contractor, Data Recognition Corporation (DRC). Demo and
tutorial products are available to provide hands-on experience to anyone
interested in learning more about online testing in Washington.
