School Performance Report/WSAS
The Wisconsin School Performance Report (SPR) was created in 1991 with the passage of State Statute 115.38. It serves as the state's annual public school report card, and represents the most comprehensive resource for data on school performance and student achievement.
The SPR is organized into two broad categories: Student Performance Indicators and Opportunity-to-Learn indicators.
Student Performance Indicators look at different measures of achievement while Opportunity-to-Learn Indicators offer insight into classes and experiences available to students.
The Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS) is a statewide assessment program designed to provide information about what students know in core academic areas as defined by the Wisconsin Model Acadenuc Standards. The Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Examination (WKCE) is one component of WSAS.
The WSAS also includes the Wisconsin Alternate Assessment for Student with Disabilites (WAA-SwD).
Statewide assessments are given to all students in grades 3-8 and 10.
The WKCE is a standardized test that includes questins customized specifically for Wisconsin and some commercially developed questions used in schools across the country. The WKCE measures achievement in reading and mathematics, using multiple-choice and short-answer questions. The WKCE for grades 4, 8, and 10 also measures achievement in language arts, science, social studies and writing.
