Badger 3-8 Test

Hello MacArthur Families!

The Badger 3-8 Test is right around the corner. Badger 3-8 is an assessment intended to replace the Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Examination. While meaningful assessment is crucial to student learning and ongoing curricular improvement, this test has significant problems. The new state exam:

  • Will not be easily compared to either last year’s exam or next year’s due to evolving computerized formats.

  • May not be funded by Wisconsin next year.

  • Takes 7.5 hours to administer, which cuts into valuable instructional time.

These concerns may limit the usefulness of the test results in improving curriculum and student outcomes, which has prompted Germantown School District to provide these notices to families. For students who will not be taking the exam, we will provide enriched learning opportunities based on materials students are familiar with to strengthen and extend their learning.

We are attempting to collect as many forms as possible prior to the start of the test so teachers are in the best position to plan for these extended instructional opportunities. We will accept opt-out forms at any time.

As we navigate these unique times, we value the opportunity to meet with families to discuss the upcoming tests and any other learning concerns. Mrs. Lori Doll, my administrative assistant, would be more than happy to assist with setting up meetings so I can meet with families to assist with any questions on Badger 3-8 or other learning concerns.

Respectfully,

Steven R Williams
