MAP Testing for Primary Grades @ Brandenburg Primary

Dear Parent,

During the weeks of December 3rd - December 10th your child will take tests called Measures of Academic Progress (MAP).  We give students MAP tests to determine your child's instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year, and from year to year in the areas of Reading and Mathematics.  Your child will take the tests on a computer.

MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for your child's level of learning.  As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing.   And with MAP tests, we can administer shorter tests and use less class time while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your child's growth.  Over the week, your child will spend a total of about one to two hours completing these tests.

Each school year, Meade County students in Kindergarten and 1st grade will take these tests in August, in December, and in the spring. Following the spring testing period, you will receive a report showing your child's growth.

We are truly excited to begin a new era that focuses on every child's individual growth and achievement.  Partnering to help all children learn, parents and teachers can have a profound positive effect on the lives of our children.

Sincerely,

Gloria Bertrand, Principal
