Assessment Information

The primary goal of assessment in the Winnebago CUSD is to improve our understanding of student learning. Individual assessments provide a limited amount of information, but used in conjunction with multiple assessment results as well as other available information about a student, we can gain a deep understanding of a student's needs.

In addition to classroom assessments, the Winnebago CUSD administers several district required and state required exams
