What is MAP?
The MAP Growth Assessment (Measures of Academic Progress) is a reading and math assessment given to all K-10 students that helps teachers customize instruction based on an individual student’s needs. MAP assessments help teachers guide instruction and give campuses information about what the students are ready to learn.
Why does the district administer MAP?
The district utilizes the MAP assessment to support our student academic growth goals. They are not tests of mastery and are not administered for grades.
When is the MAP assessment administered?
Students take the assessments three times a year. Campuses are given a window of time to give the assessments, and they can schedule to fit their needs within that time frame. Here are windows that that assessments will be administered for the 2020-2021 school year:
- Beginning of the Year- September 14 – October 8
- Middle of the Year – January 11 – February 5
- End of the Year- April 19- May 13
How is the MAP assessment given?
The MAP assessment is administered online and two reports will be shared with you to show your students’ assessment results. The Family Report will give you a summary of your student’s performance academically as evidenced by the most recent MAP Growth test. The Student Progress Report shows your student’s growth over time. It also shows how your student is progressing compared to other children at the same grade level across the district and the nation.
If I have questions about MAP, who should I contact?
Please contact your student’s classroom teacher if you have questions about how to read the reports or what the next steps will be in supporting your child’s academic success.
