Students in Kindergarten - 5th will take the MAP test three times a year. MAP is a computerized adaptive assessment that provides teachers with student academic levels in Reading, Mathematics, Language Usage, and Science. Teachers will be able to use this information to build curriculum around student needs. This test also assigns a Lexile range for each child. This helps identify reading level and allows instructors to suggest appropriate books that interest and challenge the student.
Please discuss the importance of this test with your child.
