Spring 2016: Summative assessment report: VDOE


This summative assessment report provides the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) and the 11 school divisions participating in VPI+ with information on children's development from fall 2015 to spring 2016. During the first year of data collection, fall assessments were collected in November and December. In future years, fall assessments will be collected in September and October. The fall summative assessment report can be used to better understand what skills and abilities children have at the beginning of the VPI+ program and also can be used to inform instruction and programming in the second half of the school year. The spring summative assessment report can be used to measure growth in children who were assessed in both the fall and spring. The report can also inform whether VDOE and the divisions are reaching their goals of increasing the kindergarten readiness of children in VPI+. The spring summative assessment report also can be used to identify areas of instruction that could be improved to support children's development and learning in future years. (author abstract)
