FALL 2016 at Beck Academy
MAP TESTING BEGINS September 1!
On Thursday, September 1, students will begin taking the Measures of Academic Progress Assessment (MAP). Students are tested in two content domains: reading and math.
Our testing dates are Thursday, September 1 through Friday, September 30.
MAP is not a "mastery" test. MAP is used for diagnostic purposes. 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 testing, please contact Debbie Sanders, Instructional Coach, at 355-1492.
