The following questions refer to State Standardized Testing (PARCC):
Standardized tests are summative assessments that are an important part of the educational process that inform students, families, teachers and administrators about progress in learning the standard educational material for each grade level as well as how much they have learned in the past year. The tests also enable everyone to measure performance compared to other schools and districts in the state to ensure we are providing a high quality education.

Aspen School District uses standardized testing as part of a balanced assessment system including formative assessments (quick checks for learning conducted by teachers throughout their class), interim assessments (more formal progress monitoring often conducted several times throughout the year to see how students are progressing), and summative assessments (end or course/unit, end of year assessments to find out what students know and can do).

Additionally, standardized testing results and student participation are used to determine the level of accreditation that is awarded to the Aspen School District as well as a measure of school performance. A 'Distinguished' performance rating is beneficial in the college admissions process due to the fact that the overall quality of the education is considered to be better based on the accreditation and/or school performance.

Below is a table that compares the 2016 PARCC performance ratings in Language Arts, Math and Science for the Aspen School District. How satisfied are you with Aspen School’s performance on State assessments?
