Side Data and Accountability

General Information

The Cumberland County Schools Data and Accountability Department is responsible for the training, materials distribution, scanning, and reporting of all North Carolina Department of Public Instruction and federally required assessments.    These assessments include the North Carolina READY End-of-Grade (EOG) English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics assessments in grades 3-8, as well as the North Carolina READY End-of-Grade (EOG) Science assessment in grades 5 and 8.   For high schools, these assessments include the North Carolina READY End-of-Course (EOC) assessments in English II, NC Math I, NC Math III, and Biology, as well as the ACT, Pre-ACT, and ACT WorkKeys.  The ACCESS for ELL’s assessment is administered to all students in grades K-12 identified as English Learners (EL).  Based on their educational needs, alternate assessments are also available for students with disabilities as identified through the Exceptional Children’s (EC) program.

The NC Check-Ins are formative assessments developed in conjunction with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. The assessment layout and questions are written in a way to help students be better prepared for the year-end EOG and EOC assessments. The NC Check-Ins are administered three times per school year in Grades 3-8 in Math and Grades 4-8 in English Language Arts (ELA) Grades 5 and 8 Science, and NC Math I.

Cumberland County Schools focuses on growth and proficiency when analyzing individual student test scores, as well as, how these scores are reported by teacher and school.  The Evaluation and Testing Department develops evaluation tools and provides training to CCS staff that assists schools as they plan for the future with a clear direction and focus on improving student growth and achievement.

The Data and Accountability Department also examines a variety of remediation and enrichment tools, current and proposed programs, and other topics and provides data analysis regarding their effectiveness. The Program Evaluator writes a comprehensive summary on the usefulness of the studied tools, programs, etc. and reports the data to the appropriate Central Services personnel.

The Data and Accountability Department collects and reports federal data.  Then, working with the Federal Programs Department, various programs are assessed, and the influence these programs have on data is reported.  In addition to looking at specific programs, overall individual school data is presented to the school’s staff.  This data allows principals to evaluate their school’s programs and practices and to make adjustments specific to their school’s needs.
