Formative, Benchmark and/or Interim Assessment Repository with ResourcesGrades 3-12 A pool of aligned items to each standard at each grade level within each assessment content area will be available for teacher, school, or system use for formative, benchmark and/or interim assessments to be used to inform instructional practice.

Project-Based Assessments Grades 6-12 These assessments are designed to foster research inquiry skills, persistence, independence, and intercommunications in ways that are not accomplished with more traditional summative and end-of-course assessments.
