Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Assessments

September 2014

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We will be administering the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Assessments in reading and mathematics to all students in grades 1-5 two times per year for all students and three times per year for selected students. The fall testing administration window began on September 22nd and ends on October 22, 2014.

A few weeks after testing, you will receive a score report that has your child’s overall score in reading and mathematics, as well as scores in a variety of other areas.  MAP assessments measure a student’s growth over time in reading and mathematics.  MAP assessments let teachers know where a student’s strengths are and if help is needed in specific instructional areas.  Teachers use this information, along with the results of a variety of other assessments and their own observations of student performance, to help them guide classroom instruction.

If you have additional questions, please see the school system’s website at or you can contact Ms. Nickles, our School Accountability Coordinator and Assistant Principal, or myself.
