The purpose of this document is to outline the assessment and reporting policies of Olympia High School. Our ultimate purpose is to communicate student performance most accurately and meaningfully. Skills-based practices allow us to achieve this goal by ensuring a student’s grade is reflective of learning based on standards as well as the most important skills of a discipline. Skills-based models collect accurate evidence of student performance to determine mastery of skills and content. The final reporting of student learning outcomes will be based on a professional interpretation of evidence.
