What is TestWiz?
TestWiz™ is a comprehensive student assessment solution which enables educators to track student progress and achievement, target instruction, and monitor instructional effectiveness. TestWiz provides teachers and instructional leaders with the ability to create, administer and score classroom and district wide assessments, as well as analyze and report on a wide range of local, state and standardized assessment data simultaneously.TestWiz can be utilized by a range of educators – including district leadership, principals, curriculum coaches and teachers – for assessment creation, administration, and personalized reporting. Users can create local assessments using their own items or items from NWEA's Formative Assessment Item Bank, a high-quality, Common Core-aligned Item Bank. Assessments created in TestWiz can be administered online, with paper and pencil, or a combination of both. Online assessments are scored automatically and paper-based assessments can be either scanned or key entered into TestWiz. Assessment results can be viewed by student, class, grade, school or district. Comprehensive reporting and analysis allows results to be filtered by demographics or other student attributes, viewed longitudinally, compared to other assessment results and disaggregated in a way that is meaningful to educators.
