Important Things For You To Know about Your Child's MAP Scores (Reading and Math)

  • The GOAL is to INCREASE their score in both reading and math. You should always see growth.
  • The MAP assessment measures both growth and proficiency (are students growing and where do they need to be as compared to their grade level peers).
  • You will receive a MAP report for your child in December.
  • MAP reports compare your child to other children at the same grade level in the USA.
  • Look at your child's percentage. Think of percentiles out of 100. So, if your child scored in the 85% percentile, that means your child is scoring above 85 students and below 14 students.
  • For students in grades 3rd-5th, the percentile helps you as a parent know how your child will score on the SC-Ready assessment that is taken in May by our 3rd-5th grade students.The goal is to have students scoring at the 63% or higher.
  • Students in grades K5-2nd are provided with a percentile score as well. Students in K5-2nd do not take the SC-Ready Assessment that is given in May.

Attendance Matters
