Student assessment is an important process used to continually evaluate the academic progress of students. State assessments, district assessments, and classroom assessments all contribute to the complete picture of student assessment. North Crawford students have consistently scored above the state averages in all areas of state testing. In 2007-2008, the ACT scores of North Crawford students ranked 7th best in the entire state of Wisconsin.
Our students currently participate in the WKCE test, DIBELS testing, the MAP assessment, and the ACT test. The WKCE test is a state standardized test taken by 3rd through 10th grade students in the fall of each school year. The DIBELS test is a measure of reading fluency taken several times a year by Kindergarten through 3rd grade students. We are in the process of bringing in the Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) test to evaluate Reading and Mathematics in 4th through 10th grade. If you have any questions concerning the WKCE test, DIBELS test, MAP test, or the ACT, please call Tarasa Lown at 735-4311.
The North Crawford School District believes in a Balanced Assessment System, consisting of formative, benchmark, and summative assessments. The WKCE test is an example of a summative assessment. DIBELS and the MAP assessments are examples of benchmark assessments. Of course, the most important assessments, formative assessments, are the daily authentic assessments performed by our teachers in the classroom. The combination of all these assessment types drive our curricular and instructional decisions made daily in the district.
