Wisconsin Foundations of Reading Test Support

UWM’s School of Education can help you with test preparations for the Wisconsin Foundations of Reading Test (WIFoRT).

Participants receive materials that include an overview of the WIFoRT, strategies for analyzing and answering test questions, and strategies for studying for this high-stakes test.

IMPORTANT CHANGES: Teacher candidates in the state of Wisconsin are eligible to take the FoRT 90 through August 21, 2022. WIFoRT preparation class sessions offered through June 2022 are designed to prepare students for the FoRT 90 test.

The FoRT 190 will replace the FoRT 90 beginning August 22, 2022. WIFoRT preparation class sessions offered August 2022 and moving forward are designed to prepare students for the FoRT 190 test.
