The Solon Community School District has developed a comprehensive assessment plan upon the principle that the primary purpose of assessment is to support student learning. Assessment to enhance student learning must be integrated with, not separate from, curriculum and instruction.
It is essential that the purpose of assessment begins with the needs of the learner and builds toward the needs of other stakeholders. Therefore; the Solon Community School District Assessment Plan defines assessment as the on-going process of gathering, describing and communicating information about student learning to guide instruction, promote student and teacher success and inform curriculum decisions.

Iowa Youth Survery (IYS)
The Iowa Youth Survey (IYS) results are designed to help schools and communities identify youth development-related needs, develop relevant programs, and assess the outcomes of those programs. These data can help school districts better understand students and their needs and assess the strengths and weaknesses of school, families, and communities from a student’s perspective.
