At NWEA, we understand that data from the assessments we create plays a critical role in supporting student-centered instruction, and in informing the systems, policies, and investments that support equal opportunity for all students to learn. As we partner with states and the districts to create systems that positively impact all students, we apply an equity lens to test design, content development, and integration of accessibility and accommodations.

With through-year assessment, districts and states can measure fall-to-spring growth as well as annual changes in summative performance. Plus, teachers receive both on- and off-grade level information in the fall, winter, and spring to inform teaching and learning.
