MasteryConnect

I love that MasteryConnect already has hundreds of standards built-in, like the ACT readiness and socioemotional learning standards my after-school program uses. I think MasteryConnect would be harder to implement for an educational institution using learning standards not already in MasteryConnect. Also, MasteryConnect does not function as a grade book for someone looking for that kind of solution.

NWEA MAP Suite

The grade level norms are averages and should not be used to set expectations or goals for students. The student score compared to the norm provides a perspective about how each student, or the class, or the grade level is performing. The NWEA MAP test assessments reveal precisely which academic skills and concepts your child has acquired and what he/she is ready to learn. NWEA MAP Suite reports allow teachers to better target instruction based on students’ strengths and needs.

Cons

MasteryConnect

  • I don't like that we have to make separate trackers for each sub-strand of math on the ACT.
  • Sometimes it is difficult to find the assessments I am trying to score within trackers.
  • I wish I had more support on how to use the data in MasteryConnect.

NWEA MAP Suite

  • None, this software does what it claims.

On-boarding was fine and sufficient, but we haven't really heard from MasteryConnect since then. I haven't reached out to them, either, though.

The customer service is phenomenal! Every time I call, which is not very often, I always get a friendly agent that works hard to solve my problem and does not give up. They look at all angles of the issue and will go above and beyond to help. For example, our students are rostered by connecting NWEA MAP Suite to our SIS, and sometimes there is a glitch. NWEA will call the other software company if necessary, to help get the glitch fixed.

Alternatives Considered

MasteryConnect

MasteryConnect is a more affordable option for our medium-sized nonprofit. MasteryConnect fits our needs without being "too much" software. Illuminate and PowerSchool are more built for large school systems while we are a standalone organization with only about 250 students.

Return on Investment

MasteryConnect

  • MasteryConnect has allowed our organization to track student learning data weekly for the first time.
  • We spend less than 10 minutes per week inputting student achievement data.
  • We are able to more quickly decide which skills to reteach because of MasteryConnect.

NWEA MAP Suite

  • Allowed us to test students 3x a year to better evaluate if a student is growing or not.
  • The data from the MAP assessment may be included as part of the placement review process along with other data points, such as student work samples and other assessment data to help determine if a student is ready for the next grade level.
