The Department of Research, Assessment and Accountability helps schools achieve excellence in education through data-supported decision making. It enhances student learning by serving the needs of administration, staff, parents, and students for:

  • Quality and timely achievement and survey data in forms useful for decision making and improvement planning;
  • Support of data interpretation and use; and
  • Management and support of mandated and local assessments.

Department staff oversees the school district’s Osseo Area Schools Assessment Plan and the testing calendar for all local and state-mandated tests.
