Assessments

Assessments are used as a part of the learning process.  These reports represent only one measurement of a child's knowledge.  Other measurements would include such things as daily class participation and quizzes as well as textbook generated tests.  These measurements are then used as a guide to help improve classroom instruction.

The following is a link to a list of tests administered in the Cudahy schools.

District Testing Schedule for 2013-2014

Student results on the Fall 2012 administration of the Wisconsin Student Assessment System, which includes the Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Examination (WKCE) and the Wisconsin Alternate Assessment for student with disabilities (WAA-SwD), – the Individual Profile Reports (IPRs) – were sent on February 15 directly to districts. These IPRs reflect the higher expectations and scoring changes that were announced in the summer. Parents receiving the IPRs, will be seeing their child’s performance in relation to these higher expectations for the first time and may have some concerns.

MAPTM Testing

Beginning January 26, 2009, our students in grades 5 through 8 will take tests called Measures of Academic ProgressTM (MAPTM).  We will give the MAPTM tests to determine instructional levels of our students and to measure academic growth throughout the school year.  These tests are administered on the computer.  Subject areas tested include math, reading, and language arts.

MAPTM tests are unique in that they can adapt to our student's level of learning.  And with MAPTM tests, we can administer shorter tests and use less class time while still receiving detailed, accurate information about a student's academic growth.

This assessment will not replace the yearly Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Examination (WKCE), but will provide more timely information throughout the school year regarding a student's learning.
