Winter MAP Testing

Dear Parents:


Starting next week of Jan. 16th, your child will take tests called Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) for the Middle of Year (MOY). We give students MAP tests to determine your child’s instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year (beginning - BOY, middle - MOY, and end of year - EOY), and from year to year in the areas of Math (K-6th), Reading (K-6th), and Science (4th-6th). Your child will take the tests on a chromebook in their homeroom class. Please see the schedule below:


Tuesday, Jan. 17 - Math (K-6th grade)

Wednesday, Jan. 18 - Reading (K-6th grade)

Thursday, Jan. 19 - Science (4th-6th grade)


MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for your child’s level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. And with MAP tests, we can administer shorter tests and use less class time while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your child’s growth. Following each testing period, you will receive a report showing your child’s growth.


Teachers will be discussing middle of the year growth goals with students for each subject. Please talk to your child about their goals.


For more information, see:

Sincerely,

Heather Gregory, Testing Coordinator
