Mercer students in Kindergarten through Fourth grade have or will begin assessments to help determine their current achievement levels. One of these is the Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) test for Mathematics and Reading which will be administered beginning the week of September 11. Data gathered from this computer based program is used to help facilitate instruction and ensure differentiation takes place within the classroom. MAP is administered three times during the academic year. The Fall assessment gathers baseline, the Winter assessment measures progress and the Spring assessment measures the student’s growth to that point. Please be certain your child gets plenty of rest, eats a nutritious breakfast and does their best on days when testing is taking place. Your assistance is truly appreciated.
Here is the schedule.
