Kindergarten through 5th grade students participated in MAP testing during the month of December. They took reading and math assessments. These tests can provide information to teachers about your child's strengths and weaknesses. This nationally normed test provides a percentile rank for your child compared to other students nationally as well as the RIT score provides a grade equivalent level depending on their performance. (Charts are included below.) Teachers can use this information along with the State Standards to guide your child's instruction. Reports will be sent home the week of January 7th in their communication folder.
