MAP Testing will take place May 3rd, 4th, 8th, 9th, 10th

MAP stands for Missouri Assessment Program. It is a series of assessments for English language arts, mathematics and science at grades 3-8; and English language arts, mathematics, science and social studies in high school. These assessments are designed to check student learning to find out if Missouri students are reaching the Show-Me Standards.

The Grade-Level assessments are made up of multiple-choice and machine-scored items, as well as "constructed response" items. Constructed response items require students to supply (rather than select) an appropriate response.
 What can a parent or guardian do to help on test day?
  • Be aware of the testing schedule.
  • Be certain that your child has had adequate rest (this may mean getting them used to an earlier bed time before the week of testing).
  • Be on time for school.
  • Avoid scheduling appointments that can be made at a later date.
  • Dress your child in layered clothing. This way, the child may add clothing to get warmer or remove some clothing to be cooler.
  • If your school allows it, make sure your child has a book to read when the testing session is complete.
  • Be certain that your child has two or more number two pencils (not mechanical).
  • Have a positive attitude about testing.
Thank You Veterans!!!
