    • Product Matrix / Table noting subject, grades, usages etc.
    • Explain how NWEA's products can work together
  • High Level: "Yes, students and teachers are finding this engaging, it's different on every product level." Detail Level: "We have research on how students and teachers are using tests, etc.
  • Can be taken w/in one class period, but students who need more time don't have the pressure of a timer
  • ROBUST data: you can get a lot in a small amount of time
  • We support from implementation into day-to-day, etc. and we don't "charge extra" for this. When you work with us you get a point person for your account. (Need to validate the same for Skills Pointer and CPAA.) Extend SP messaging to others.
  • Also MAP/MPG research about student engagement: NWEA can tell if students aren't trying (quick test vs. ice cream social mentality.) "There are ways to ensure and report on whether or not students are engaged and teachers are effectively administering tests.
  • Because MAP starts w/ student (adaptive) its unique to student's individual capability
  • CPAA & SP needs content around special needs.
  • CPAA has Spanish and MAP has Spanish math: could use more answer for ELL
  • Also MAP/MPG research about student engagement: NWEA can tell if students aren't trying (quick test vs. ice cream social mentality.) "There are ways to ensure and report on whether or not students are engaged and teachers are effectively administering tests."
  • All abilities: lower, higher, etc.
