Student Assessment

Tests provide information for students, parents, teachers, and schools.

Assessments are part of the teaching and learning process in Fairfax County Public Schools. Teachers give assessments to students on an ongoing basis to check for understanding and gather information about students' knowledge and skills. The state and school division also expect students to participate in certain tests to help with monitoring school and student performance and to provide information about additional services that may benefit the student.

Parents and guardians should contact their children's schools with any testing questions or for additional information about how schools and teachers use test results to support student success.
