NWEA Testing Begins

By | May 13, 2019

Our scholars will be completing their NWEA testing this week and next. The test usually takes less than an hour, and the questions depend on the student–if your child answers a question correctly, he gets a harder question; if he answers incorrectly, he gets an easier question.

The test will not measure your child’s grade-level proficiency. It provides an RIT score for reading and math. It just shows what your child is ready to learn so we can personalize lessons for each child.

You can help your child prepare for the test by making sure they’re well-fed and well-rested. Encourage them to do their best. Make sure to read to your child at least twenty minutes a day, every day. Make numbers and counting part of your daily conversations with your child.
