MAP Growth TESTING BEGINS December 3-14, 2018
On Monday, December 3, 2018, 8th grade students will begin taking the Measures of Academic Progress Assessment (MAP) GROWTH assessment. Students are tested in two content domains: reading and math.
Our testing dates are Monday, December 3 through Friday, December 14.
MAP is not a "mastery" test. MAP is used for diagnostic purposes to measure growth. Students are not expected to get every question right. In fact, the best assessment measure is one where a student gets 50% of the questions right and 50% of the questions wrong. This is where we get the best information on the actual instructional level of a student.
Should you have any questions about MAP GROWTH testing, please contact School Testing Coordinator, Debbie Sanders, Instructional Coach, at 355-1492.
You may also reach me by email at email@example.com.
