MAPs Testing

Students will be participating in NWEA MAPs testing January 25-February 5th. These exams will take place in their Math and Language Arts classes. We will be sending out more information as we get closer.

In addition to NWEA MAP, some students will participate in the FastBridge reading and/or math screening assessments. Results from these assessments help determine appropriate course placements for next year. From this data, you will be informed in the spring of any course recommendations for your child.
