Winneconne Students AGAIN Excel on State Assessments

The Winneconne Community School District students have done it again! The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has released the State assessment results from the 2016-17 school year. Our students knocked it out of the park! Winneconne students have shown significantly higher results as compared to students in our area and across the state of Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Forward Exam is taken in grades three through eight by all schools in the state. Among Winneconne students taking the Forward Exam, 76 percent of our students were proficient or advanced in English language arts compared to 44.2 percent at the state level. In mathematics (grades 3-8), 64.4 percent of Winneconne students were proficient or advanced compared to 42.5 percent statewide.

At 11th grade level, students take the ACT. The ACT is the same college admissions exam taken by students nationwide. Overall results show 62.6 percent of Winneconne students achieved at the proficient or advanced performance levels in English language arts compared to 39.3 percent statewide. In mathematics, 51.2 percent were proficient or advanced compared to 35.4 percent of juniors statewide.

These scores are an excellent indicator of our students’ and staffs’ commitment to high levels of learning for ALL. We could not be more proud!
