MAP Testing

Happy Wednesday HSA Katy Families,

Next week, starting on Wednesday, January 20th, we will be starting our Winter MAP Assessment. Students in K-5 will be tested on Reading and Math. Students in K-2 will also check for their Reading Fluency and 4th and 5th graders will also test in Science. Classroom teachers will be reaching out to you with more information. Please ensure that your student(s) is on time and ready to test in their Zoom sessions.

As this assessment is not a grade, we politely ask that parents not assist their child during testing. This assessment gives the teacher vital information on how to help their students. They don't need to know what YOU know, they need to know what YOUR CHILD knows.

Please see the schedule below for testing dates.

Thank you for all you do to make HSA Katy great!

Anyone interested in the educational welfare of these students may nominate them for assessment. Students in grades 2 & up who were tested in Fall 2020 are not eligible to test in Spring 2021. Referral forms are available at the front office and on the school’s website.
