Each Fall and Spring our students in grades K-8 take a standardized test called Measures of Academic Progress (MAP). This standardized test determine a child’s instructional level and measures academic growth throughout the school year, as well as from year-to-year in the areas of language usage (3-8), reading and math.

MAP tests are unique in that they are adaptive tests students take on the computer. This means the more questions the student answers correctly, the test becomes more difficult and vice a versa.

MAP testing is a powerful tool for monitoring student growth over time. This test is a tool to improve student learning as it enables teachers to recognize where to focus attention to differentiate learning for each individual student.
