Wisconsin School Report Cards

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) publishes a report card for each public school in the state. The report cards are based on state test performance, high school graduation rate, and student attendance. Schools receive an overall accountability score (1-100).  We're excited to share the successes of our students and staff on our most recent report cards!

ACT Aspire (Gr. 9 - 10)

ACT Aspire® is an online summative assessment that measures what students have learned in the areas of: English, Reading, Math, Science, and Writing.  ACT Aspire® scores predict how a student will perform on the ACT when they reach 11th grade.

PreACT (Gr. 10, 11)

The PreACT provides students with a structured testing environment similar to what they will experience when taking the ACT, ACT test-quality questions, and predictive scores on the familiar 1–36 scale. This helps students get comfortable with the test and understand how they’re doing in core subjects. It also helps parents and educators identify areas where additional support might be necessary. This test experience is usually provided in the fall for grade 11 students.


ACT + Writing (Gr. 11)

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) entered into a partnership with ACT®, Inc. during the 2014-15 fiscal year to comprehensively assess Wisconsin high school students. The ACT with writing consists of four multiple-choice tests: English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science; and a 40-minute essay test that measures student writing skills.

DPI also uses The ACT® with writing for the high school accountability measure in order to determine the extent to which schools and districts across the state meet proficiency standards.

MAP Growth (5K - 8)

MAP Growth is an online assessment that helps teachers understand what students know today, so goals can be set to improve growth throughout the year. Students are usually tested two or three times each school year in reading and math. Students cannot pass or fail this test. MAP scores do not affect a student's grade.

DLM (Gr. 3-11)

Devereux Students Strengths Assessment - DESSA (5K-10)

The Devereux Students Strengths Assessment (DESSA) is a standardized, strength-based behavior rating scale completed in 5 to 8 minutes and used by educators and parents to measure the social-emotional competence for children in grades K-8 (the DESSA-High School Edition is used for students in grades 9-10). Grounded in resilience theory and directly aligned to the CASEL framework, the DESSA is commonly used to inform the delivery of SEL at tier 1 or tier 2 as well as measuring the results of that delivery.
