MAP Testing in March
During the month of March students will take tests called Measures of Academic Progress (MAP). These tests are given to determine instructional levels and to measure academic growth throughout the school year and from year to year in the areas of Reading and Mathematics. Students take each of the tests on a computer. MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to each student's level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed.
Partnering to help all students learn, parents and teachers can have a profound effect on the lives of students. For more information about resources for parents, access the Document Library at www.nwea.org. Parent's Guide to MAP (English) or Parent's Guide to MAP (Spanish).
