Haledon Public School believes that assessment is an important component of good teaching and essential to understanding student learning. From the embedded formative assessments that every teacher uses daily to the structure of standardized assessments, it is our philosophy that gathering and analyzing these data help us to continually improve our work of teaching and learning.
