MAPS TESTING:


Dear Parents,

Students in Kindergarten through 2nd grade will take MAP Primary tests in Reading and Math beginning March 5th and continuing through March 25th. These tests determine your child’s instructional level and measure academic growth throughout the school year. For specific testing dates for your child’s class please inquire with your child’s teacher.

MAP Primary tests are unique in that they are adaptive tests your child takes on a computer. That means that the test becomes more difficult the more questions your child answers correctly. When your child incorrectly answers a question, the test becomes easier. Therefore, your child takes a test specifically created for his or her learning level. In addition, your child will have the opportunity to learn the information presented on the test because the tests are aligned with the Common Core Standards

For more information on resources for parents, access www.nwea.org and download the online Parent Toolkit from the web site. Thank you for taking an active interest in your child’s education.

If you have any questions, please contact Rhonda Kelsey at 985-1616.

Sincerely,

Rhonda Kelsey

Assistant Principal
