DIVISION MISSION :: The mission of the Accountability Services Division is to promote the academic achievement of all North
Carolina public school students and to assist stakeholders in understanding and gauging this achievement against state and national standards.
The major thrust of this mission is three-fold: the design and development of reliable and valid assessment instruments, the uniform
implementation of and access to suitable assessment instruments for all students; and the provision of accurate and statistically appropriate reports.
