Anchorage School District
Avant STAMP 4S and Avant STAMP 4Se
For several years, Anchorage School District (ASD) has found success using the Avant STAMP test to gather data for student and program development. Because Avant STAMP gathers data at the student, class and school levels, ASD has been able to rely on this one assessment to meet several needs within the district. Beginning in the 2015-2016 school year, Alaska's teachers and administrators will be held accountable for their students' growth and will be evaluated using student learning data. ASD has selected the Avant STAMP test for their World Language and Immersion Teacher Evaluation Assessments. The qualitative data provided by Avant STAMP will not only provide a more complete picture of an educator's efficacy, but also serve the need of providing students and programs with evidence of growth and suggested areas for improvement.
