Assessment Testing

WACS schools regularly assess a student's achievement and growth across proven learning standards from Kindergarten through Grade 12.

WACS Assessment Testing

As part of the AACS achievement testing program, WACS schools leverage the The Iowa Assessments™ and Cognitive Abilities Tests® from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

The 2024 AACS Iowa Achievement Testing Period for WACS schools is March 20 – April 28, 2024.

Process for Your School Assessment Testing

AACS member schools receive significant discounts on test materials, and you may purchase the exact quantities needed. No minimum purchase amounts are required as is usually the case in individual school orders.

If your school is not already participating in the AACS achievement testing program, give consideration to testing through the AACS program. You will find the value far outweighs the cost.

Consider These Values in Achievement Testing:

  1. Testing can help to verify the quality of your school's academic program.
  2. Testing can provide information on annual student and class progress.
  3. Testing results are a good public relations tool.
  4. Testing can help to determine if students are working at their level of ability.
  5. Testing can be of value in class grouping and placement.
