MAP assessments will take place from December 4th through the 22nd. These assessments are used to measure student progress and growth in the areas of reading and math. The data provided by this measurement helps our teachers identify students’ strengths and areas where additional support is needed, and also helps guide instructional decisions to ensure that all students make adequate growth over time. Here are some tips you can do at home to help your child do his or her best on the MAP:
h Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep the night before the assessment.
h Provide a good breakfast the day of the assessment.
h Express your confidence in your child’s ability to do his/her best.
h Avoid upsetting situations or changes in routine, if possible.
Please contact your child’s teacher for exact dates for testing. Thank you for providing the extra support your child needs to be successful!
