Assessment & Accountability

The Assessment & Accountability department supports the data needs of students, families, and staff by:

  • Overseeing all school, department, district and state assessment processes, including building, maintaining, and analyzing assessments
  • Providing support and training on assessment systems, assessment literacy, and various assessment-related technology
  • Preparing reports for various stakeholders
  • Overseeing myriad data for the district, including attendance, college-going, behavior, and teen health survey.

The department utilizes various tools and services to help school and department teams monitor student progress in an effort to make evidence-based decisions about instruction, student support, and school climate. It is our goal to work with school and program leaders to build a strong culture of data use.

Cambridge Public Schools strives to provide high quality learning experiences that meet the needs of all of our scholars and build welcoming schools. We are excited to share that our school community (families, students, and staff) had the opportunity to tell us how we are doing in the first District Climate Survey since 2020. The feedback will inform decisions and contribute to the ongoing implementation of our District Plan.

The survey was open from Monday, November 27 - Friday, December 15.

Thank you to everyone who completed our District/School Climate Survey. We had record participation with over 60 percent of our families sharing their feedback! We value and appreciate your input as we strive to continue to provide high quality learning experiences that meet the needs of all of our scholars. Over the next several weeks, we will be reviewing the data and look forward to sharing the primary findings with you next month.

We partnered with Panorama Education for the survey. Panorama safeguards your privacy, keeping your responses confidential.
