Steps in the Right Direction: Reporting Assessment Results to Students, Parents, School Board Members, and the Media.
Using test results to improve instruction is vital to improving the education system, but equally important is to report results to other stakeholders. These stakeholders include the students who took the test, their parents or guardians, other parents in the school or district, the local school board, and the public at large. Effective reporting is essential if the data have been and will be used to improve student learning. The purpose of this chapter is to describe some ways in which educators can report assessment results to various audiences so that they build public confidence and support, strengthen the parent's role in schooling, and help students learn about the challenging standards being assessed.
