Assessment Resources

The PSD Curriculum & Assessment Task Force recommends the use of either Riverside Insights Iowa Assessments or NWEA MAP® Growth assessments 

Iowa Assessments measure student growth and college readiness. They provide accurate and actionable information at skill and item levels, helping educators make informed decisions. The assessments are rigorous and efficient, with powerful reporting, making them the proven leader in measuring student achievement.
