Foundations of Wisconsin’s Strategic Assessment Systems

Scroll Icon

Balanced assessment systems play a key role in Wisconsin schools. Educators use a variety of assessments – formative, interim, and summative – to drive the teaching and learning process, make effective decisions about learning, program effectiveness, and closing achievement gaps. Educators recognize the need to strategically choose high quality assessment tools and practices and use the data to directly impact student achievement.
