Pewaukee School District, Wisconsin. Case Study: Measures of Academic Progress
Northwest Evaluation Association
For more than a decade, Pewaukee School District Superintendent JoAnn Sternke has watched her district get better and better at its mission: opening the door to each student's future. The Wisconsin district began using Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) computer adaptive interim assessments from Northwest Evaluation Association™ (NWEA™) in 2004 as a tool to improve student growth. After years of effort by educators, staff, and students to advance academic achievement, Pewaukee School District (PSD) now boasts one of the highest graduation rates in the state. In 2013, they received another tangible marker of success: the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the highest presidential honor given to American organizations for performance excellence. School leadership credits educators' increasingly sophisticated use of high-quality assessment data with improvements in classroom learning and programmatic effectiveness.
