The purpose of the student assessment inventory (also known as the comprehensive student assessment analysis) is to help address questions and concerns about assessment that have been raised by the Knox County community. This issue was one of seven community conversations included in Superintendent Jim McIntyre’s 2015 State of the Schools Address. Ultimately, the goal of the analysis is to help ensure that all assessments given to students in the Knox County Schools are either required or useful in informing instructional decisions. The Knox County Schools is gathering input from school leaders, teachers and students through a combination of school meetings, focus groups, individual interviews, surveys and a community meeting. The analysis is funded by a grant provided by Achieve, Inc.
