The MAP assessment (Measures of Academic Progress™), managed by Northwest Evaluation Association replaces the IOWA Test of Basic Skills given to students in years past. MAP will be administered during a two-week window each trimester, the first one beginning Monday, September 19.
As you learned on Curriculum Night, this is a formative online assessment of student growth. The results will help teachers, parents and students set goals. These adaptive tests on the core areas of reading, language arts and math can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. Students in grades 4 – 8 will also take science.
To learn more about MAP and to review the tips for parents, see the attached document. Parent Tool Kit, A Guide to NWEA Assessment.
Feel free to contact administration if you have questions.
