Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) Test Scores
As part of our local assessment program, students in grades 3-8 take the NWEA MAP (Measures of Academic Progress®) assessment each fall and spring. The NWEA-MAP assessment creates a personalized experience by adapting to each student’s learning level as they progress through the test. These assessments are particularly valuable for the school district, as we are able to measure each student's growth and identify areas of focus for the student as well as areas in need of attention in our instruction and curriculum. Unlike the NECAP, the decision to utilize these assessments is made locally. Because of the local nature of the assessment, we are not able to draw comparisons with other schools or states, but we make use of the data internally to help students meet growth targets that are determined and recalculated as a result of each test.
