Assessment and learning solutions to help educators at every level make a difference for kids

From classrooms and district offices to state departments of education, our assessments, services, and learning tools work together to support making great decisions for kids.

What partnership means to us

The challenges facing K–12 education are too large and complex for anyone to take on alone.

At NWEA, partnering means understanding your unique needs and committing deeply to the long-term success of your students. It also means we work with difference-makers across the educational landscape to identify and remove barriers to more equitable outcomes and opportunities for all kids.

For us, partnership is not a buzzword or a gimmick—each one is an intentional, meaningful collaboration in service of our mission.

Our people

We are doers, dreamers, big thinkers, and problem solvers, united by a mission to help all students learn. As a remote-first team living and working in the communities we serve, we stand committed to learning from each other, advancing equity, and pushing ourselves to be better than the day before—for ourselves, our partners, and for kids.

Compelled by our mission and a lasting commitment to innovation and equity, our work continues.

Nearly 50 years after our work began, we continue to provide precise, trustworthy, research-based assessments. Our partners have the flexibility and freedom to leverage their data with a multitude of curriculum providers and supplementary learning tools to find the best fit for their unique needs.

NWEA is now part of HMH, bringing together the best of assessment and curriculum to create new and impactful ways to empower educators and help kids learn.
