Madison Metropolitan School District


The work for the Department of Assessment and Learning Supports involves overall administration and coordination of state and district large-scale assessments. We work to support schools in test scheduling, understanding how to correctly and securely administer tests, and providing basic information for using test results. 

Our vision is to create a culture of "assessment for learning" where all stakeholders within the MMSD community will understand, value, and leverage appropriate data that will support and inform equitable outcomes for all students.
