MAP Assessment Window Begins Soon

Tue, 09/24/2019 - 2:13pm

The MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) assessment window for Grade 1 opens September 23rd and for Grades 1-5 on October 1st. The window closes October 29th.

The Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments are computer adaptive achievement assessments in reading and math. As a student responds to questions, the test responds to the student, adjusting up or down the difficulty of the questions presented to the student.  MAP assessment items align to objectives in the Maryland College and Career Ready Standards. This assessment is designed to measure student growth in math and reading, both during the school year and across multiple school years.  The assessment allows teachers to see instructional strengths and needs for each student.

At the conclusion of the assessment, each student receives a score that aligns to where he or she is instructionally based on this assessment.  MAP in conjunction with other measures throughout the school year help teachers differentiate instruction within their classrooms. Home reports will be sent in SFES Friday Folders at the end of the testing window.  A reminder will be shared with families for when these reports are being sent home.
