State Assessment System

Waupun Area School District Participates in the Wisconsin State Assessment System. Information from the Wisconsin DPI on this system can be found at

The assessments in the system include:

  • Early Literacy Screeners

    • Waupun is able to choose a screener to utilize.  We use PALS in 4K and i-Ready Diagnostic for Kindergarten through 2nd Grade.

  • Wisconsin Forward Exam


  • ACT

  • Dynamic Learning Maps

In addition to the state assessment system, we use other tools to identify student needs and needed adjustments to our teaching or curriculum. This is done on a regular basis throughout the school year using assessment partners, such as i-Ready Diagnostic, and classroom level assessment information.

Universal Screener

Students in Kindergarten Through 8th Grade participate in a screening assessment three times over the course of each year.  This screener is used as one element in informing us of students needs.  We also use this information as an element in informing our instruction and curriculum adjustments.

The screener we utilize is i-Ready Diagnostic.  There is a an i-Ready Family Center that can provide you with information regarding this resource.  You can also access i-Ready Diagnostic reports for your student by contacting your student's teacher or school office.
