Due to the school closures for COVID-19, DPI has determined that it will not be possible to give state assessments during the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. The state has also received a federal waiver for federal testing requirements for this year.

This means that the Forward Exam, the ACT Aspire exam and the Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM) tests will not be given this year.

More information can be found on the DPI COVID-19 site. For questions regarding MMSD, please email Tim Peterson, Director of Assessment at tpeterson2@madison.k12.wi.us.
