FREE MAP Testing

Identify strengths and areas of improvement

The Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Test is a nationally recognized and normed assessment that measures a student's grade-level proficiency in the areas of Mathematics, Reading, and Language. You may learn more about it at www.nwea.org.
 
MAP testing is an invaluable tool in helping us serve you and your students. One reason we chose this assessment for our students is because the test score data shows the student's "Zone of Proximal Development" -- educational jargon used to describe "what a student already knows, and what he or she is ready to learn." The test results are completely individualized to each student, providing a holistic picture of the student's grade level proficiency in the Common Core Standards, relative to other students across the country at their grade level. It also provides projected academic growth information, so teachers and students can set personalized and realistic academic goals.

I used to hate all of my classes. Now that I’m here, I don’t have one favorite subject - I like all of my classes. The teachers here have changed everything for me. Now I really enjoy going to school.
