Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments are the common assessments used by the district (grades K-11) to measure student academic growth in reading, language, math, and science at the district level, the campus level, the grade level, the classroom level, and the individual student level. These tests are administered three times during the year. This data drives our district’s strategic plan in the area of academics.
At the campus level, the MAP results help each vertical team establish goals. These assessments also aid teachers in setting classroom goals and the Educational Roadmap in charting each student’s growth.
