MAP Testing

MAP Testing will take place from April 27th, until May 8th. Students will test one day each week. It will be administered on desktop computers in the computer lab. Both ELA and Math tests will be approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes long, but will not be timed, and students will have time to finish if not completed in the allotted time.

Please help us encourage the students to get plenty of rest and eat a nutritious breakfast during MAP testing. Please try to not schedule any appointments during these times. Thank you
