We’re on a mission to help all kids learn.
Who we serve
We work shoulder to shoulder with educators across schools, systems, and states to foster student growth through evidence-based assessment and learning solutions that respond to the needs of all learners.
Why? Because every kid deserves it.
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.
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.
I love working at NWEA because I get to research how students grow academically and what educators can do to support students’ learning. The icing on the cake is that I also get to collaborate with an amazing team of researchers and district partners.MEGAN KUHFELD
Every day, I get to use my skills to make a real difference in students' lives. From building innovative assessments to crunching data, I'm all about using technology to give students and educators the tools they need to succeed. It's rewarding work and I'm proud to contribute to NWEA's mission and technology.JAKE PARKER

Pursuing diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility is inherent to the mission of NWEA. Our DEIA team works diligently with colleagues across the organization to keep that mission clearly in focus as we engage with students, educators, schools, communities—and each other. It’s challenging, but deeply meaningful and satisfying work.JOE SIMMONS
I love that my work at NWEA contributes to two important conversations: creating better assessments to measure achievement and progress for historically marginalized student populations and designing more equitable policies to make educational opportunities accessible.ANGELA JOHNSON
I thrive best in environments that allow me to use my skillset and provide me progressive pathways. It empowers me to know I can positively impact the world. I am grateful that I have the support needed at NWEA to keep growing, to keep moving forward, and to become stronger.AMBER AHMAD
