Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS)

In 2013-2014 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested. GreatSchools' ratings currently reflect 2012-13 testing data. Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the WSAS test. As a result of these changes, proficiency scores for Wisconsin schools are lower than they were in previous years.

    I have 2 children in Woodfield school. I have nothing but good things to say about the school teachers and principal. My daughter was having some difficulty at school and the teachers and principal were extremely helpful in getting us the help we needed. The teacher parent contacts are also good. Academically I feel they do well in helping children who are behind and also getting enrichment work for those who are excelling.

    My daughter has been enrolled for 5 years now and she has had 4 fantastic teachers and one that was ok. The academic standards are very good and she is being expected to do projects and homework independently now. The teachers are very caring when it comes to parent concerns and very communicative when Emailed. They have a fun theme for the school year each year and try to do 'extra' things that are tied to academics to keep things interesting. As a former educator turned at home mom I am very impressed with the staff at Woodfield and would highly recommend it.
