MOY NWEA Map Growth Screener

We have completed our middle of year assessments in NWEA. Now, we will spend time going over the data and creating an individual learning path for your student. We want to make sure that each student is getting exactly what they need. Your student's schedule may change as we do our best to make the most individualized classes that we can.

Mindplay and Exact Path

The expectation is that every 4th grader spends 60 minutes a week working in Exact Path either on their specific Learning Path or on an assignment assigned by the teacher. The work that students do in Exact Path will be used in the gradebook.

The expectation for Mindplay is just like other courses within the OLS. Each 4th grader is assigned lessons with specific due dates in the OLS. They will be need to be completed just like all other course work. You will notice Mindplay showing up on the Bison On Track Calendar.

If you have questions, please reach out to your 4th grader's teacher.

Course Information


Please continue to have your child read everyday for at least 20 minutes.


Please have your student practice their multiplication facts everyday.

Continue Multiplication Practice

It is vital for our fourth graders to know how to multiply. Division, fractions, perimeter, area, etc. are all built off of multiplication. There are many strategies out there to support your fourth grader in mastering this skill. 4th graders are expected to know multiplication facts between 0-12. This means they know from 0 x 0=0 all the way to 12x12=144.

Spend 20 minutes each school day working on multiplication facts this school year.

You will be given the choice to accept or decline each opportunity.
