Student Assessment and Research is a department within the Academics Division
Throughout the year, the Student Assessment arm of the department assists schools with all aspects of Broward's assessment program including preparing, administering, and reporting of state-required and district tests.
The Research arm releases briefs, reports, and evaluations that provide knowledge and support to strengthen decision making by the Superintendent, the School Board, and district and school-based administrators.
The Student Assessment and Research department reside in two locations; the Kathleen C. Wright (KCW) building and the Twin Lakes facility.
