Welcome to Assessment & Research

  • books The Assessment & Research Department supports Everett Public Schools in the areas of  assessment, analysis, evaluation, testing, and research.

    The Assessment & Research Department team supports national, state and district assessments. We work collaboratively with teachers, administrators and staff within the district to support student learning and meet the goals of the strategic plan.  In Everett, we use many ways to evaluate how each student is progressing toward high standards of achievement.
