Achievement Level Test (ALT, or paper-pencil) tests in the subjects of mathematics, reading, and language usage are available for visually impaired students in grades 2-12. You may have these ALT tests translated into braille. In order for you to receive your ALT test materials, these students must be included in your Class Roster File (CRF) with the appropriate ALT codes.

To determine which test, or level, to administer:

Check the student's answer sheet:
After we process your CRF, we will send your organization an answer sheet containing the student's information. If the student has tested with NWEA before, the answer sheet contains the student's subject level.

New students, and students without levels:
New students and students for whom the system is unable to determine a level will have a pre-printed answer sheet without a subject level indicated. To determine which level test to administer:
  1. Give these students a Locator Test, a brief test that determines the subject level appropriate for the student.
  2. Enter the appropriate subject level manually on the answer sheet.
