ASSESSMENTS

Assessment Overview

 

Every year, our 2nd through 6th grade students take a standardized, nationally accepted test called the Iowa MAP® Growth™. 

MAP® Growth™ Testing

MAP® Growth™ measures what students know and informs what they’re ready to learn next. By dynamically adjusting to each student’s responses, MAP Growth creates a personalized assessment experience that accurately measures performance. Timely, easy-to-use reports help teachers teach, students learn, and administrators lead.

 

However, one test alone cannot indicate a student’s overall strengths or weaknesses. A more complete picture is gained by observing trends over several years. Also, all areas of the student must be viewed in order to gain an accurate picture of a student’s overall strengths or weaknesses.
