NWEA (formerly known as Northwest Evaluation Association) is a mission-driven, not-for-profit organization that supports students and educators by creating assessment solutions that precisely measure growth and proficiency—and provide insights to help tailor instruction. MAP Growth measures what students know and what they’re ready to learn next. By dynamically adjusting to each student’s performance, MAP Growth creates a personalized assessment experience that accurately measures performance—whether a student performs on, above, or below grade level. eSpark is an approved instructional partner of NWEA, making it easy for schools and districts to differentiate in reading and math based on students’ MAP Growth assessment data.
eSpark uses instructional area RIT scores* provided by NWEA to pinpoint students’ unique needs and differentiate instruction with our reading and math pathways.

*As NWEA does not assess foundational skills on the 2-5 reading test, we use students’ overall RIT score as the level for reading foundational skills. For all other areas, we use the instructional area RIT score.
