Statewide Testing

WDC students participate in statewide testing annually. According to the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE), Minnesota’s statewide assessments give teachers, school districts and state education leaders information in context that they use to make decisions about education. Teachers and schools can use that information to help guide instruction and better support students. The state and members of the public can use the data to focus on the important goal of providing equitable opportunities for all students across the state.

More information about the types of statewide assessments and how they are used can be found on MDE's website.
