This guide describes the automation process of your current academic year NWEA data sets. We utilize tools within our eduClimber product to pass the data into Illuminate.
You are still able to manually import the data via State/Known Data Imports if you prefer, even if you have the automation enabled.)
You do NOT need an eduClimber account to set up the automation. Also, none of the data will be housed in eduClimber, unless you have purchased that product.
When Can I Start?
Once automation is running only the most recent or current benchmark period of data will be exported from NWEA. If there is any historical NWEA data that hasn’t been imported (prior benchmark periods from this current year or prior years) please import those first.
See Upload State Assessment Data for details.
Create a NWEA account for this automation in NWEA:
- NWEA info is needed from customer who creates an NWEA account for Illuminate:
- user: illuminateNWEA_instance name (append _district for consortium configurations)
- example: illuminateNWEA_demo
For consortiums: append _district
- example: illuminateNWEA_demo_abcdistrict
role: District Assessment Coordinator
We will use the @educlimber.com address even if you don’t have educlimber, we use educlimber created tools to make the automation possible.)

Hi Support Team,
We would like to request that the NWEA automation be setup for the current academic year starting ASAP. As requested I have setup the following:
Please let us know when the automation setup is complete.
We will take it from there and let you know when the automation is set up.
Once the setup is complete, it will typically take 24-48 hours to start receiving files from NWEA that will then appear in Illuminate. Once the automation is set up, you will be able to monitor the imports in the State/Known imports log.
