NWEA MAP WINTER TESTING January 28th-February 8th

Grades 6th-10th

 

Dear Parents/Guardians:

We give students MAP tests to determine your child’s instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year, and from year to year in the areas of Reading, Language, Math, and Science. Your child will take the tests on a Chromebook. MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for your child’s level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. And with MAP tests, we can administer shorter tests and use less class time while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your child’s growth.

 

* Please make sure that your student gets a good night sleep, a good breakfast and comes ready to do their best on the test. 

 

*Please remind your child to bring their Chromebooks to school fully charged.

In this case, we need your valuable opinions on the design and overall usability of the site for our upcoming redesign.

It’s easy to take part in the survey and should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete!

All we ask is that you be open and honest and give us your feelings on the website.
