Assessment
The Tiverton School Department values instruction that is personalized and tailored to the needs of our students. Our staff members use ongoing, brief  formative asessments to drive and refine instruction to best support each student.

In accordance with federal and state requirements, our students participate in the Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessments at the end of grades 3-9.


Tiverton educators monitor student progress closely, through the use of benchmark assessments, progress monitoring probes, and monitoring of classroom performance. This onformation is used to identify students in need of  supplemental instruction, different methods of instruction, remediation, and/or enrichment.

All of our schools have Response to Intervention (RTI) Coordinators, Reading Interventionists, and Math Interventionists in addition to other specialists.

RTI Teams at each school collaborate with families to develop personalized supports, interventions, accommodations and growth targets for our students.
