Map Testing November 27th - December 8th Contact your sponsor teacher to reserve a spot
MAP testing is about to start up for our second session.
There have been some changes in the district that will affect how we do our testing. Additionally, we are trying to streamline our testing procedures to provide an optimal testing environment for our students.
- The Anchorage School District has mandated that students only take one test per day. Taking both the Reading and Math test in one day is no longer an option so to accommodate this new mandate, the first week of testing will be for Math testing only and the second week of testing will be dedicated to the Reading test.
- Parents will need to stay and wait for their student to finish testing. Please do not drop off your student and leave. Because each session will only administer one test, the testing time will be greatly reduced so waiting time will be minimal. This enables our proctors to concentrate on keeping an orderly and quiet testing environment without having to manage students who have finished testing.
- Please understand that the scheduling process is very complex. Please give at least 24 hours notice if you need to reschedule. In the case of illness or emergency we of course will understand, but if it is at all possible, we need a heads up for schedule changes.
Please remember that Math testing and Reading Testing will be done on different weeks.
