MAP Assessment Family Report
MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) assessments are administered in grades 6-8 three times a year in Reading, Language, and Math. Teachers and staff utilize this data to see where students are and in which instructional area, they are ready to learn.
The assessment is designed to measure a student’s achievement level during the fall, winter, and spring of the school year and assess growth. Teachers can see the progress of individual students and of each class. Students with similar MAP scores are generally ready for instruction in similar skills and topics. MAP also provides data around the typical growth for students who are in the same grade, subject, and have the same starting achievement level. This data is often used to help students set goals and understand what they need to learn to achieve their goals.
MAP focuses on growth over time and should be viewed through a growth lens. In the next week your child will receive the MAP Family Report with their data points. Students are encouraged to bring this home and share it with parents. Students are familiar with MAP and discuss their growth and goal setting with teachers.
Please contact your child’s math or ELA teacher with any questions about the MAP assessments.
