Assessment and Accountability

Assessment
     Iberia Parish participates in the Louisiana Educational Assessment Program. Louisiana Believes starts with the premise that all students can achieve high expectations and master rigorous academic standards. If we believe that all students can achieve, then we must measure their progress to ensure they remain on track for college and professional careers.

Iberia Parish students are assessed annually in English Language Arts/literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies in 3rd through 8th grades; high school students take End-of-Course tests in six subjects: Algebra I, Geometry, English II and III, Biology, and U.S. History. The assessments measure whether each student has gained the knowledge and skills in the subject for their grade.

In order to prepare students for Louisiana’s economy, Louisiana is raising expectations for students. As a part of this transition, students in grades 3-8 will take the PARCC assessment. The PARCC assessment is aligned to Louisiana’s standards, was developed with significant input from Louisiana educators, and was field tested with nearly 50,000 students in spring 2014. In addition, the assessment has other important advantages for our state.

Students in 8th through 11th grade will take a series of assessments, including EXPLORE, PLAN, and ACT, and WorkKeys to ensure students are on track to graduate from high school on time and with the knowledge and skills to succeed in college and challenging 21st century careers. These tests assess student achievement of English, reading, math, and science. Students earn a score in each subject and a composite score which reflects all subjects. These rigorous and nationally comparable assessments are a key tool to measure college and career readiness.

Accountability
Louisiana grades schools on a scale of A through F, just like students. Letter grades provide families and the public the information necessary to understand school performance. The grades are calculated based on student achievement, academic indicators and measures of career and college readiness, such Carnegie credits earned through 9th grade, graduation rates, and earning Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and Dual Enrollment.
