“Our engagement with NWEA allows assessment results to inform targeted assignments and individualized instruction, while providing teachers and administrators the data they need to monitor and track student progress.” – Chris Porter, CEO, Apex Learning

Apex Learning, a recognized leader in online learning, announced a new partnership with NWEA. NWEA is a research-based, not-for-profit organization that supports students and educators worldwide by creating assessment solutions that precisely measure growth and proficiency and provide insights to help tailor instruction. This new partnership maps student assessment scores from NWEA’s MAP® Growth™ assessment to Apex Learning Tutorials for middle school students.
“Now more than ever teachers need resources they can count on to address learning loss and help students progress toward grade-level goals,” said Chris Porter, CEO, Apex Learning. “This is especially true as educators work to address learning loss resulting from COVID-19 school closures. Our engagement with NWEA allows assessment results to inform targeted assignments and individualized instruction, while providing teachers and administrators the data they need to monitor and track student progress.”
NWEA’s MAP Growth provides accurate, reliable assessments for grades K–12, measuring academic performance and tracking student growth in math, reading, language usage, and science throughout the school year. The standards-aligned reports for teachers and administrators allows teachers to plan for differentiated instruction, to develop interventions for students who have identified learning gaps, and also to provide administrators the context to drive improvement across entire schools and systems.
“Great student outcomes are possible when educators have a precise, timely view of student performance and growth,” said Chris Minnich, CEO of NWEA. “We believe that Apex Learning shares our mission to advance student outcomes while providing districts with the resources they need to increase opportunity of achievement for every student.”
