2020-2021 Assessment Window Calendar

The Weld RE-4 School District uses multiple assessments to review student progress.  We have formal and informal methods of assessment, including classroom school specific tests.  These assessments are used to diagnose learning gaps, provide a "snapshot" of student learning, and provide staff with information needed in order to improve instruction or recommend interventions.  We strive to maintain a balance for students and staff while still complying with various legislation. 

If you have questions about any of the assessments, please contact Amy Heinsma, Director of Instruction, at (970) 686-8028 or [email protected]
