Honor every learner’s journey to language proficiency
Grades K–12 Assessment Core

Non-native English student populations are increasingly growing in size. Meeting the unique challenges of these learners requires dedication, reliable assessments, and close collaboration between teachers and parents. 

The Woodcock-Muñoz Language Survey® III provides quick and reliable assessments for teachers while comprehensive, bilingual reports inspire parents to take an active role in their child’s learning journey. 

Make sure your district is prepared to meet your English learners’ needs!
