Intro to Performance Matters:

Performance Matters is a unified platform for student assessments (formative and comprehensive), assessment analysis, and reporting. It collects and organizes all student data in one integrated platform, giving educators and administrators a holistic view of individualized student growth within every classroom and school building across our district. The goal is for staff to have easy access to data and assessment tools needed to design and deliver personalized instruction to meet the needs of students within their learning environments. Performance Matters was designed to make your life easier, so you can focus on what is more important – the students and teaching!
