Standardized Student Testing Information

WELS has signed cooperative purchase agreement with NWEA MAP (Measures of Academic Progress).

NWEA MAP is a formative electronic test designed to be used 3-4 times throughout the year.

Adaptive & Personalized assessment experience. If a student answers a question correctly, the test follows up with a more challenging question. If a student answers incorrectly, the test follows up with an easier question. By adjusting the difficulty of items up or down, MAP precisely measures every student’s achievement as well as growth over time.

Real-time, actionable data. After the test, you’ll have assessment data—and essential information about what each of your students knows and is ready to learn—within 24 hours.

Short testing times, substantial rewards. Educators around the globe trust research-based MAP and its interactive Learning Continuum to deliver instructional insights that help inform individual student learning paths, classroom instruction, and programmatic decisions.
