NWEA assessments are used to measure your student’s progress or growth in school. You may have a chart in your home on which you mark your child’s height at certain times, such as on his or her birthday. This is a growth chart. It shows how much he or she has grown from one year to the next. NWEA assessments do the same sort of thing, except they measure your student’s growth in mathematics, reading, science and language usage. The scale used to measure your child’s progress is called the RIT scale. The RIT scale is used to chart your student’s academic growth from year to year.
