Assessment & Accountability
Beginning Tuesday, January 23rd, parents in Seminole County Public School’s will have the opportunity to take part in the development of a new method to showcase what makes each of our schools unique. SCPS has partnered with Datanautix, a local data analytics firm, to create a new, more transparent school report card that will feature a snapshot of parent, student and school staff perceptions as well as other critical data points.
All responses are collected anonymously and no personally identifiable information will be included as a part of the survey. The survey will be open from January 23rd to February 23rd. Parents, please visit this page beginning January 23rd to access the survey.
The primary objective of the Department of Assessment & Accountability is to preserve the integrity of all student achievement data and to provide that data in a timely manner to be used for a variety of educational decision-making purposes.
To ensure that student and school academic performance information is accurate,clear, and meaningful to all students, parents, educators, and community members, we provide training for, and the coordination of, all state and federally mandated student assessment programs.
Additionally, we offer such services as data collection, analysis, assessment and interpretation, and the generation of reports for schools and other instructional groups.
Please visit our site often for the latest in test score information, accountability system updates, and links to other useful sites.
