NWEA Measures of Academic Progress Assessment

Three times a year (Fall, Winter, and Spring), Westfield students (2nd - 5th) are assessed in reading and math by using the NWEA Measures of Academic Progress assessment tool. Once tested, students are given a score (RIT) that determines their level of proficiency in each subject area. Click here to see the NWEA National RIT Norms. Each RIT score is associated with specific skills.

Each of the assessed areas are divided into content skills:

Math Skills includes: Algebra, Data Analysis and Probability, Geometry and Measurement, and Numbers and Operations

Reading Skill includes: Comprehend and Interpret Literature, Comprehend Non-Fiction and Informational text, Understand Letters, Words, and Vocabulary Strategies

Once students have established their NWEA RIT scores, teachers work at connecting overall student/classroom NWEA RIT scores with lessons and skills they teach.
