Yesterday, students in Grades 2-10 took their first MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) Tests.
MAP assessments are adaptive, which means that every student gets a unique set of questions based on responses to previous questions. As the student answers correctly, the questions get harder; if the student answers incorrectly, the questions get easier.
The purpose of the MAP Test is to determine what the student knows and is ready to learn next. The MAP provides us with assessment data twice annually that help track student growth and better ensure that learning is appropriate for the needs of each student.
