Fall MAP testing will be conducted this week.

Posted Sep 4, 2018 | Category: News

Due to a technical problem at NWEA, last week’s Fall MAP testing were not taken.  All the tests will be taken this week.

Student will participate in Reading and Math MAP testing. Tuesday and Wednesday, students will work through the Math MAP during math classes.  Thursday and Friday, students will take the Reading MAP and ELA classes.

How can parents help? Please ensure that your child has plenty of rest, eats a good breakfast, and brings a healthy lunch and snack to school. Another great way to support your child is by talking with him/her about the assessments. Some discussion prompts include: What goals have you set for yourself in ELA? Math? How did you decide on those goals? What study routines do you have in place that will help support your learning this school year?  These conversations can help your child better navigate the learning process and also allow you to be a greater part of it!
