MAP testing has begun
This week we began our first round of MAP testing. Students began testing in their math classes.
As a campus and district, we use this data to monitor student growth, and to plan instruction.
For those new to MAP testing, check out this video for a brief overview of map testing, scoring, and what the scores mean: https://www.testprep-online.com/map-scores
If you are wanting to see your student’s prior scores, please check “Performance Management” section on parent portal: https://parentportal.pisd.edu . By clicking your student’s name you can view their assessment history. This is a great opportunity for you and your student to discuss goals for the school year. Over all, the goal is to see 4-5pts per calendar year.
Somethings to consider:
- It is not unusual for a slight drop in the first MAP score when students return from summer break, please do not be alarmed, if your student’s scores remain the same, or drop a few point from their spring score.
- The MAP test is adaptive. It will automatically get harder or easier based on student progress. It is ok for students to receive questions on material above their grade level.
- Math: Sept 22-25th
- Reading: Sept 29th- Oct 2nd
- Science: Oct 6th – 9th
Parents with students who are testing via S@H, please check in with your students to make sure they are taking their time and focusing while testing.
More information on MAP is below.
If you received a phone call or an email, stating your student was absent.
Please contact your student’s teacher. The teacher monitors and determines student engagement. You can find your student’s teacher and teacher’s email on parent portal.
The attendance secretary cannot make any corrections without the teacher’s authorization to correct a student’s attendance.
