During the week of June 5th-9th your child will take tests called Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®). We provide students MAP to determine your child’s instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year, and from year to year in the areas of ELA and Math for grades K-3 and ELA, Math, Language, and Science for grades 4-8. MAP was administered in the fall and will be administered again to see your child’s growth throughout the year.
MAP is computer based and is unique in that it adapts to your child’s level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. With MAP tests, we can administer shorter tests and use less class time while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your child’s growth.
We are truly excited on this new era that focuses on every child’s individual growth and achievement. Partnering to help all kids learn, parents and teachers can have a profound positive effect on the lives of our children.
