All states have established standards for academic content across the grades. States are currently required to assess student knowledge for reading, math, and science. Wisconsin academic testing occurs in the fall for students in grades 3 through 8 and grade 10. The name of the assessment system in Wisconsin is the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS).
All students, including students with significant cognitive disabilities, deserve and have a right to a quality educational experience. This right includes, to the maximum extent possible, the opportunity to be involved in and meet the same challenging expectations that have been established for all students.
