Study of Assessment Use in Colorado School Districts

As part of a statewide effort to help Colorado’s district and state leaders understand the scope and range of student assessments currently in use, the Colorado Legacy Foundation (CLF) contracted with Augenblick, Palaich and Associates (APA) in November 2011 to conduct a first of its kind study intended to provide an inventory of the nature, type, and frequency of student assessments that are given in school districts in the state.
