Local Assessment Data

FFC8 uses a number of high level district assessments to measure general progress in Math and English Language Arts. 

  • Acadience Reading (DIBELS) - Measures students' early literacy skills and helps determine if students are on track to read at grade level (K-3)

  • Illuminate DNA - Measures students' progress towards mastery of year-long, grade-level standards in Mathematics and English Language Arts (Grades 2-5)


District DIBELS Data

The chart above combines student achievement and growth to determine if they are "On Track, On Watch, or Off Track".   A student's early literacy progress is considered "off track" if they are not demonstrating enough growth to meet expectations.

State Assessment Data

Students in the district are assessed annually by the State. The Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) and the PSAT/SAT assessments are given annually.

  • English Language Arts (ELA) - Grades 3-11

  • Mathematics (Math) - Grades 3-11

  • Science - Grade 5,8,11

This data is used to track overall student achievement and growth, as well as monitor any specific growth gaps between student groups.  The data is not received until after the school year is over; therefore, it is most useful as a tool for reflection.
