NWEA is a non-profit, researched-based company with a mission – a commitment – to help all kids learn. Having been partnered with schools and districts in Texas and the Gulf Central region, NWEA supports educators both in Texas and around the globe by creating assessments and learning solutions.
According to Dave Irby, Senior Director, the company’s motivation is guided by the commitment to empower teachers and improve outcomes for students. That commitment became their goal and is echoed in all the company’s efforts: their research, advocacy, products, and services.
Choice Partners has made it possible for NWEA to partner with hundreds of schools in Texas, providing trustworthy data to help educators make decisions with confidence. This data includes instructional planning, projecting proficiency on the STAAR, measuring student growth, tracking college readiness, and more.
The company’s products are a testament to the collection of the above data, as Irby places specific highlights on how students find help with NWEA. “Our award-winning products and tools—including MAP® Growth™, MAP® Reading Fluency™, and MAP® Accelerator™—along with dozens of instructional content providers help educators meet students where they are to address unfinished learning, provide scaffolding, and deliver targeted interventions,” Irby said.
Irby is committed to improving the lives of students and empowering educators. He spoke of the benefits Choice provided to NWEA with their services.
“As two organizations founded on partnership, we are honored to work alongside Choice Partners—a team that supports our work by making sure districts are compliant with federal and state purchasing requirements,” Irby said. “Their support brings us one step closer to achieving our mission here in Texas.”
