While students, parents, and even teachers and educational researchers bemoan testing, such assessments are still a fundamental part of schooling. Tests allow educators to find out if teaching = learning, if perhaps imperfectly. So, in addition to the standards tests required by the state of California, there are more. There are myriad teacher-made tests, and LHPUSD has created and uses other assessments to help students and teachers evaluate learning. Additionally, there are other tests that colleges & universities use to assess student abilities in making admission decisions. Check the pages to the left for some of the assessments we use in LHPUSD.
