Assessment Information
MVM utilizes an assessment approach that encompasses a wide range of methods to evaluate the academic, social, and emotional development of our children.  We understand that no one data point will ever be descriptive of a child’s potential.  However, the information we can gather from these assessments can help guide our instruction, identify any gaps in learning, and ensure that we are fully meeting the needs of the child.  The following assessments are required by the state of Utah, but we also incorporate regular classroom assessments, teacher observations, student portfolios, alternative assessments, and student self-assessments to give a more comprehensive picture of a child’s abilities.
RISE Info
The RISE assessment is a multistage computer adaptive criterion-referenced assessment system that includes summative tests for English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics, Science, and Writing. We administer the summative assessment to all students from third grade to seventh grade at the end of the year.
