The Division of Accountability, Assessment, and Data Systems administers the Maryland School Performance Program’s annual Report Card.  The Maryland School Performance Program requires the collection of data on an annual basis to provide accountability on the state, school system, and school levels.  The analysis and interpretation of these data provide the basis for school improvement efforts at each level.


The Division delivers the annual student assessments—Maryland School Assessment, Alternate Maryland School Assessment, and the Maryland High School Assessments and provides information management, data analysis and interpretation services.
