Each school year, students from Grade 2 through Grade 8 are scheduled to take tests called Measures of Academic Progress™ (MAP). We give students MAP tests to determine their initial instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year, and from year to year, in the areas of Reading, Language Usage, and Math. Your child will take these tests on a computer.
MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to the level appropriate for your child’s learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. Following each testing period, parents will receive a Student Progress Report showing their child’s growth.
These tests, along with other teacher-created assessments, will help us analyze your child’s learning. With this information in hand, we will plan your child’s learning program.
