Wisconsin Forward Testing

Dear Parent:

The Middle School will start the Wisconsin Forward testing during the week of March 19. Grade 8 students will have ten different testing sessions covering the topics of Math, Reading, Writing, Social Studies and Science. Grade 6 and 7 students will have six different testing sessions each covering the topics of Math, Reading and Writing. Students will be testing about one day a week during the seven week testing window. Many staff hours have been dedicated to planning for a successful student testing experience.

Winneconne Middle School students in Grades 6, 7, 8 will be participating in the Wisconsin Forward assessment during the following testing dates; Grade 8 – March 20, 22, April 3, 10, 13, 17, 24 Grade 7 – April 5, 12, 19, 26, May 1 Grade 6 – March 21, April 4, 11, 18, 25

One or more subtests may be administered daily during the identified time frame and it is very important that your son or daughter be in school on these days. Please avoid scheduling appointments on testing days. Students not in school on the scheduled testing days will be scheduled for a make-up test prior to the close of the testing window. The testing window closes on May 4.

The following links are Information for Families about Assessment in Wisconsin which gives more information about the assessment including its purpose, what scores will be provided, and how the scores will be used.


The Wisconsin Forward assessment measures the knowledge and skills your student(s) should have acquired by the time they reach each grade level. Their performance on the assessment will not affect any of their current grades. Please encourage your son or daughter to take the test seriously and do the best they can. The results of these tests will be used to help school staff make determinations or placement in classes to best support your child’s learning.

If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Schroeder at 582-5800 ext. 2124.
Thank you,
Todd Schroeder, Middle School Principal.
