Elementary MAP Testing (Grades K-5)
January 23 - February 3
During the weeks of January 23-27 and January 30-February 3, students in grades K-5 will be completing MAP testing. MAP, or the Measure of Academic Progress, is a computerized adaptive test which helps teachers, parents, and administrators improve learning for all students. Your child’s classroom teacher will let you know the days your child will be taking these tests. Please do everything you can to be sure your child is present those days. As always, if your child is not feeling well, keep him or her home and we will set up a make-up session.
The students in grades K-2 are taking two tests; one in reading and one in math. Students in grades 3-5 will take an additional test in science. The tests are untimed, but each test session generally takes one hour to complete. If a student needs more time, more time will be provided. For students in Kindergarten, the sessions are only half-an-hour long. The amount of time spent testing is greatly decreased using these computerized tests, and we will be able to access results almost immediately to be able to better serve our students and families.
