Philosophy of Assessment
Denison ISD believes that assessment provides the information necessary to improve student performance. Assessing student performance is a method by which state and federal education authorities determine the district's progress and effectiveness. It is also an important part of the instructional process as it allows professional staff to make informed decisions, set priorities, allocate resources, and be accountable to students, parents, and the Denison ISD community.

The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) redesign will be fully implemented in spring 2023 for all grades/subjects and courses. Since new question types have been added to STAAR assessments and the test blueprints have been updated, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) wants to ensure that the performance standards continue to accurately reflect what students know and can do through a standard-setting process. Educators from across the state will convene in the spring and summer to provide their expert opinions and verify that the cut points and related scale scores are appropriate for the redesigned STAAR assessments. Given this extra activity, the reporting process will be a bit longer this summer.
