During the week of February 27, your child will take tests called Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®). We will give students MAP tests 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 math and English. Your child will take the tests on a laptop or Chromebook.
MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for your child’s level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. And with MAP tests, we can administer shorter tests and use less class time while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your child’s growth. Over the next week, your child will spend a total of about 2 hours completing these tests.
This school year, students in grades 7-12 take the tests in February and May, and next school year students in grades 7-12 will take the tests in September, January and May. Following each testing period, you will receive a report showing your child’s growth.
