MAP Testing in Progress

Below are the dates for State Testing for Fulton Public Schools.

***Missouri Assessment Program EOC (End of course) – Make-up testing will be held on May 3-4 in the Counseling Center

***Missouri Assessment Program testing in Grades 3-5 continues over the next two weeks, concluding on May 14 (English Language Arts, Math, and Science in grade 5)

***Missouri Assessment Program testing in Grades 6-8 begins on Tuesday, May 11 (English Language Arts, Math, and Science in grade 8)

Due to the disruption of learning caused by the pandemic, state assessments will not be used for accountability purposes. However, these assessments are still important and will help FPS support acceleration for each student. Assessments will be used by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to determine what was effective for students, where inequities exist, and where to apply resources going forward.

To provide accurate results, please encourage your child to do their best on this year’s assessment. Make sure your child gets proper rest and nutrition during the test dates.
