Below is information about the MAP assessment that was sent home to parents at the beginning of April.


In a few weeks, your child will be participating in the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) Grade-Level Assessments. The purpose of this letter is to provide you with general information about the assessments, and to inform you of the middle school's testing schedule. Please make every attempt to ensure that your child is present during anticipated testing times/dates and that he/she is prepared for testing.


MAP Information for Parents

What is the MAP?

MAP stands for Missouri Assessment Program. It is a series of assessments for English Language Arts, Mathematics and Science at grades 3-8; and English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies in high school. These assessments are designed to see if students in Missouri are meeting the Missouri Learning Standards.

Grade-Level Assessments are given in English Language Arts and Mathematics at grades 3-8, while Science is assessed at grades 5 and 8.

The Grade-Level assessments are made up of multiple types of questions:

  • Selected Response (also known as multiple choice) items are composed of a question followed by a series of possible responses. Students must select the correct response or responses.
  • Constructed Response or Short Text items require students to supply an appropriate response rather than making a selection from a list of choices.
  • Performance Tasks/Events allow students to work through more complicated items using real-world scenarios.
  • Technology Enhanced items make use of technology in the presentation of the item, the ways in which students respond, or both. For example, students might listen to a story and then drag and drop labels into a diagram, or click on specific parts of a text to provide a response.
The Algebra I End-of-Course (EOC) assessment is required for students who are taking Algebra I. These students will take the Algebra I EOC, rather than the 8th grade Mathematics MAP.

The End-of-Course assessments are made up of two types of questions:

  • Selected Response (also know as multiple choice) items are composed of a question followed by a series of possible responses. Students must select the correct response or responses.
  • Performance Tasks/Events allow students to work through more complicated items using real-world scenarios.
How can I tell if my child is being successful?

Your child's results will be sent to you in the form of an Individual Student Report (ISR). The ISR provides information about performance on the MAP, describing results in terms of four levels of achievement in a content area. The test is scored (or graded) according to four achievement levels: Below Basic, Basic, Proficient, and Advanced. Missouri's goal is to help students achieve in the top two categories. Assessment results may be used for instructional planning as a point of reference during a parent/teacher conference, and for permanent record keeping. Other sources of information, such as classroom performance, should be used along with this report when determining the student's area of strength or need.


When test results become available, they will be uploaded to the district's AXSIS/WEBSIS system and will be accessible on the Student Portal for your child.
