MAP Testing (Grades 1-5) Fall 2019
Beginning next week, students in grades 1-5 are participating in the MAP assessment. MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) is an un-timed, computer-adaptive assessment that provides our teachers with detailed, specific information about where your child is performing in Reading and Mathematics. Our grade level teams collaborate to analyze the data from the MAP assessment and plan instruction that builds on your child’s strengths and supports areas where there is room for improvement.
Though the assessment is un-timed, students typically finish each session in approximately one hour. There are two sessions scheduled for each grade level: one for reading and one for mathematics. Make-up sessions will be scheduled for students who are absent on specified testing dates.
You do not need to do anything special to prepare your child for the MAP assessment other than ensure he or she has a good breakfast and a good night’s rest the night before. We do ask that you avoid scheduling appointments on the day when your child will be assessed (dates/times listed below). Students who are absent on the day their grade takes the assessment will be afforded the opportunity for a make-up session on another date.
