The Edgerton School District uses a comprehensive assessment system to inform decisions at the classroom, school and district levels.

Wisconsin Student Assessment System

The Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS) is a comprehensive statewide program designed to provide information about what students know in core academic areas and whether they can apply what they know. The WSAS includes:

  • The Wisconsin Forward Exam at grades 3-8 in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics, at grades 4 and 8 in Science, and 4, 8 and 10 in Social Studies.

  • PreACT Secure at grades 9 & 10 in English, Reading, Mathematics, and Science.

  • The ACT with Writing at Grade 11 for Reading, English, Mathematics, Science, and Writing.

  • ACCESS FOR ELs is administered annually for students identified as English Learners (ELs) to determine their level of English language proficiency (ELP) and ensure that they are progressing in achieving full English proficiency.

  • Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM) at grades 3-11 in ELA and Mathematics, at grades 4 and 8-11 in Science, and at grades 4, 8, and 10 in Social Studies.

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires all states to test all students in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics in grades 3-8 and oncie in high school. ESSA also requires students be assessed in Science once each grade span (3-6, 7-9, and 10-12 grades). Student performance on these assessments is reported in proficiency categories and used for accountability determination at the school, district and state levels. Wisconsin State statute also requires students to take grade 9 and 10 assessments as well as the social studies test. These tests together create the Wisconsin Student Assessment System.
