PRB Schools uses data to drive the decisions we make about instruction, curriculum and intervention strategies all with a mind towards maximizing student growth.

In order to gather that data, we use formative and summative assessments including both in house assessments and state/national norm-referenced diagnostic assessments.

Click on any of the assessments to learn more. While there may seem like a lot, we’ve been very intentional to not add extra testing if we can help it. 

Families that wish to opt-out their children from state-mandated testing may do so by completing the form below.

STAR Tests

STAR tests are the district's main diagnostic assessment tool for determining student learning growth over the course of a year and multiple years at PRB. The tests assess reading and math skills three times throughout a school year and provide important supports information for students needing intervention so as not to fall behind
