• About the Hopkinton Assessment Framework

    The Hopkinton Public School District’s Assessment Framework articulates a balanced system of assessment that:

    • Aligns with Massachusetts Common Core and local standards;
    • Supports our district mission, values, and philosophy of learning;
    • Provides assessment information that is compatible with information from previous grades;
    • Provides students, their parents and teachers, and administrators with information about student achievement;
    • Provides formative data to be used by Professional Learning Communities (a.k.a. Data Teams) for instructional and programmatic improvements;
    • Supports the requirements of the Educator Evaluation System, and
    • Utilizes an array of assessment methods to determine the understandings, knowledge, and skills that students have acquired.
