Consistent with Baltimore County Public Schools’ Blueprint 2.0, the Office of Assessment helps school administrators, staff, and system leadership measure student academic growth to guide instructional decisions for students and communicate the purpose and results with parents, guardians, and other community members. The office provides test administration training and support to allow for the successful implementation of standardized assessments to develop globally competitive graduates. In addition, the office disseminates timely and accurate assessment information and data to various stakeholders.

The office adheres to the following principles:

• Assessment purpose must be clear
• Assessment value must exceed instructional time lost
• Assessment mechanics must not impact value
• Assessments must be fair and support equity
