MMSD Approved Diagnostic Assessments

Below you will find the list of approved diagnostic assessments for use in the Madison Metropolitan School District. These assessments are current, have established professional development within the district, and provide the breadth of coverage that is required for use within the district. These tests should only be given by qualified, licensed professionals.

Staff may also use other non-standardized tests / measures, as part of their assessment of a student, e.g. systematic observations, parent interviews, and other components of a comprehensive evaluation. Please contact your PST / Lead for Psych / SW, S/L, or OT/PT for more information.

Work is underway to add guidance around the use of gender norms for transgender and gender diverse students.
