At Burlington-Edison we believe that assessing student achievement through testing is an integral part of instruction. We use this data to determine whether or not we are meeting our educational goals. The results of these assessments affect our decisions about grades, placement, advancement, and instructional needs. Additionally the state required assessments are used to ensure all public school students, no matter where they go to school, receive a quality education. This page contains important information and support documents for teachers, parents, and students.

These are excellent resources for administrators, teachers, parents and students. Please encourage everyone to use and share this information for instruction, practice or remediation.
