Display Tips

  • If available, click Edit Display Options to further control the display. The Display Options are not available on all test versions.

    • Group by Topic—These topic groups are chosen by NWEA to make it easier to locate common themes and content. The topics are not connected to any standard.
    • Group by Standard—Most useful when combined with the Grade Level Standards filter, so you can isolate particular standards.


    • Filter by Grade Level Standards—Use this in combination with the Group by Standard option:

  • Use the browser search: Ctrl+F or Cmd+F.

    Example: You are unsure which sub-goal contains a certain topic.
