One of the hallmarks of Clayton students at every grade level is strong academic achievement. Students score consistently higher than national and state peer groups on standardized testing. The District demonstrates its commitment to continuing this tradition by evaluating student performance through a comprehensive assessment process that includes multiple-choice, constructed response and performance-based testing. Each one of these types of assessment measures student achievement in slightly different ways. Together, they supply the District with a more complete profile of student achievement than any one of them could alone.We hope that it will provide useful information about our district and students.
