Third Party Assessments

  • Third-party assessments provided through Student Support Services provide districts and schools a means to collect relevant, actionable student data impacting students and teachers. 


    Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA)

    NWEA offers computerized adaptive assessments. As a student responds to questions, the test responds to the student, adjusting up or down in difficulty. Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) are available for reading, mathematics and language arts, from kindergarten into high school. Spanish voice translations are available. NWEA is on the New York State Education Department list of approved assessments.

    STAR assessments provide the most valid, reliable, actionable data in the least amount of testing time- usually 20 minutes or less by using the power of computer adaptive technology.   This allows educators to focus on what matters most- individualizing instruction to accelerate learning for all students.
