Get Embargoed Access to Learning Loss Report

How much are students really learning during the pandemic?  

Get insight from one of the first national efforts to answer that question in this Education Writers Association’s webinar. Journalist attendees get embargoed access to the reading and math test results from the nearly 4.4 million U.S. students in grades 3-8 who took NWEA’s MAP® Growth™ assessments earlier this fall. 

Learn from NWEA researchers about how students have performed since the pandemic hit in March, and how they performed this fall relative to a typical school year. You’ll also get reporting advice and story ideas from education data reporter Matt Barnum of Chalkbeat.  


  • Chris Minnich, CEO, NWEA
  • Megan Kuhfeld, Senior Research Scientist, NWEA
  • Matt Barnum, Chalkbeat (moderator)
