What Is NWEA?

Three times each year, all PCS students take a test in each of their classes that we use to determine how best to meet their unique educational needs.  These are called NWEA (Northwest Evaluation Association) tests.  After students complete their NWEA tests, they receive a current score and a goal for the end of the year.  On Friday, November 1st we sent home NWEA scoring reports with all middle school students.  These reports show your student's score (represented by a bar graph) and their goal score (represented by a broken line).  Teachers met with all students and helped them develop plans so that they could meet their goal scores.  If you have any questions about interpreting NWEA results, please contact your child's homebase teacher or Dr. Schrimpf.
