During the testing window of September 8th-21st, students in first through fifth grades will take the MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) test in the areas of Math and Reading. This adaptive assessment is used to inform teachers of each student’s ability in multiple areas and to help us monitor student growth over time. The data provided by MAP assessments also gives our teachers important information that is used for planning lessons to meet the unique instructional needs of each student.
Although the MAP test is not an assessment that you can prepare for by studying, there are a few things that parents can do to help ensure that students are prepared and ready for testing. Please make certain that your child is on time to school, well rested, and has eaten a good breakfast each day they test. Thank you in advance for your support and assistance as we work together to help ensure the success of our students.
The testing calendar below indicates the specific dates of testing for each grade level.
