Student Assessment Overview

Each year, we assess the academic progression and performance of students using third-party assessments: Stanford Achievement, NWEA, the PSAT, the Pre-ACT and the ACT College Readiness. These tests provide teachers, administrators, and families a view into students’ understanding and grasp of information taught through each school year.

NWEA – Grades 3-8

Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) is a research-based, not-for-profit organization that supports students and educators worldwide by creating assessment and learning solutions that precisely measure growth and proficiency—and provide trustworthy insights to help tailor instruction.

Stanford Achievement Tests (SAT10) – Kindergarten-Grade 2

This is a norm-based assessment that compares the number of correct answers given by a student to the percent of other students’ correct answers, plus a high and low percentile given on the score sheets. Learn more here.
