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.
