During the month of September, your child will take tests called Measures of Academic
Progress ® (MAP ® ). We give students MAP tests to determine your child’s instructional level and
to measure academic growth throughout the school year, and from year to year in the areas of
Math, Reading, Language and Science (6-8) and Math, Reading, Language(9-10) . Your child
will take the tests on a computer or Chromebook.
MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for your child’s level of learning. As a
result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude
toward testing. And with MAP tests, we can administer shorter tests and use less class time
while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your child’s growth. Following each
testing period, you will receive a report showing your child’s growth.
achievement. Partnering to help all kids learn, parents and teachers can have a profound
positive effect on the lives of our children.
