• Testing

  • Testing DatesWelcome to the Deuel School District's Testing and Assessment web page. Our goal is to provide students, parents/guardians, and staff with the necessary resources to ensure a successful year of testing.

    Standardized tests are given during pre-determined windows throughout the school year and serve several purposes. Some of these tests help teachers determine how much academic growth or progress students are making in each subject area. Other tests help teachers determine the most important areas that require an additional or heightened teaching focus.

    By evaluating data, the school district decides which teaching practices best support student understanding of standards. Assessment results also provide families valuable information about how well their child is doing and where more help might be needed.

  • State Report CardThe South Dakota Report Card is intended to share important information about the state’s public schools. It encompasses a variety of indicators that contribute to school performance.

  • Family ReportMAP assessments help teachers identify the instructional level of the student and also provide context for determining where each student is performing in relation to local or state standards and national norms. MAP reports allow teachers to better target instruction based on students' strengths and needs.

Department of Education Required Assessments

  • The goal of the SD Department of Education is that all high school students graduate ready for post-secondary education or life ready. To this aim, the South Dakota assessment system is designed to provide districts, schools, and parents with the information they need to ensure that their students remain on track to achieve this goal. South Dakota public school students participate in annual summative testing in English language arts and mathematics and the results of these tests are included in the state accountability system. In addition to annual tests in English language arts and mathematics, South Dakota requires assessment of science and writing annually and provides schools and teachers with resources to utilize other assessments to help identify strengths and areas for improvement.
