Executive Summary

Interim assessments

  • Interim assessments are “assessments that: 1) evaluate students’ knowledge and skills relative to a specific set of academic goals, typically within a limited time frame, and, 2) are designed to inform decisions at both the classroom and beyond the classroom level, such as the school or district level.
  • States, like Delaware, are also considering Interim assessments as a method of measuring student growth in non-tested grades and subjects.
  • The DIBELS (Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills) and Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) are well known interim assessments.
