South Washington County Schools

Research Evaluation and Assessment

The Research, Evaluation, and Assessment (REA) Department members are partners, leaders, communicators, collaborators and impact agents in the design, implementation and evaluation of the continuous improvement process of the South Washington County School District.

The REA Department primarily supports the District with implementing the continuous improvement process.  We provide support and expertise to schools and staff through:

  • Reviewing and summarizing research around student learning and instruction;
  • Providing expertise in the area of measurement including survey and assessment development;
  • Evaluating district and school programs; and 
  • Providing professional development in the area of appropriate assessment use and data interpretation (e.g., assessment literacy).
