Chip Sharp,

The Office of Research, Assessment, and Accountability administers an ongoing program of assessment and evaluation in support of the district's instructional services. The office coordinates all district-wide assessments (i.e., MAP, MAP End-of-Course Assessments, EXPLORE, and PLAN) and provides support to teachers, principals, and central office administrators in the interpretation and communication of test results. The office also provides support for the development of common assessments and oversees the district's assessment-data management tools (i.e., TetraData Warehouse and Mastery Manager).
