Testing Resources and Tips
Testing 22-23 Parent Letter
The MAP assessment is designed to measure a student’s achievement and growth over time in reading and mathematics. When used in combination with other formative assessments, as part of a balanced assessment system, MAP provides educators with valuable data to use for making informed instructional decisions. MAP is required for all students in Grades Kindergarten-10 (K-10).
Three times a year (Fall, Winter & Speing) Kindergarten -5th grade students will take the computerized 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. Additionally, the tests measure growth from year to year in the areas of reading and math.
MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to the appropriate level of learning for your child. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. With MAP tests, we can administer shorter tests and use less class time, while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your child’s growth. Over the next few weeks, your child will spend a total of approximately 2 hours completing these tests.

Prior to testing, please talk with your child about doing his or her best. You know your child better than anyone. Emphasize the importance of the test, but remember to build confidence, not anxiety. By working together, we can make your child’s test experience positive and successful. Here are some suggestions that you can do to help your child succeed:
*Make sure your child gets a good night’s rest. *Have your child eat a healthy breakfast.
*Make sure your child runs the device readiness test (see above). *Encourage your child to do their best.
