Wisconsin's Strategic Assessment Systems (SAS)

A New Balance: What is a Strategic Assessment System?

Strategic Assessment Systems (SAS) measure progress towards college and career readiness, including academic preparedness and social-emotional competence, across classrooms, schools, districts, and the state. When implemented strategically and systematically, assessment systems - including formative, interim, and summative measures - lead to improved student outcomes.

Strategic Assessment Resources

Our goal is to provide support to schools and districts as they build capacity for assessment literacy, effective data inquiry, and collaborative professional communities committed to processes of continuous improvement.
