Dear Parents and Guardians,
Each year, CCSD students in grades K-10 participate in the reading and math MAP assessment. Students in Grades 3-8 also participate in the MAP science assessment. These assessments take place three times per year, during the fall, winter, and spring. From November 29 to December 17, 2021, your child will take the online MAP® Growth™ assessment for the winter benchmark. Due to distance learning, the assessment will be completed by students remotely. I ask for your cooperation so we can successfully administer the assessment with the least minimal disruption to your child’s learning as possible. Please refer to the test preparation tips below for specific instructions.
MAP measures what students already know and what they are ready to learn next. Teachers will use this data to facilitate conversations with students about their learning and to set personalized growth goals. MAP also provides data to customize lessons to meet each child’s instructional needs.
MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to your child’s level of learning. When your child answers a question correctly, the test follows it with a more challenging question. When your child answers incorrectly, the test follows with an easier question. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude while testing. We STRONGLY request that students complete the test independently and without assistance to ensure the most accurate data is collected.
Together, we can have a profound positive effect on the lives of our students.
