It is hard to believe that we are already preparing for MAP testing, and before we know it, we will be in the final weeks of the school year! We want to thank you, the parents, and all of our students, for helping to make this year successful. We are fortunate that we have maintained 5 days a week, seated courses for the entire school year. As we continue through the school year, we will be MAP testing Monday, May 3rd- Thursday, May 6th. After testing is complete, there are several activities and learning will continue to occur through the end of the school year. We ask that everyone maintain focus and continue to work hard in classes, so the year ends on a successful note.
Included in this letter is information regarding our upcoming MAP assessment schedule. We ask that everyone assist in making sure our students can perform at their best during MAP assessment. Everyone has worked hard this year, and we want to ensure that this shows in student performance.
MAP Information for Parents
What is the MAP?
MAP stands for Missouri Assessment Program. It is a series of assessments for English language arts, mathematics, and science at grades 3-8; English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies in high school. These assessments are designed to check student learning to determine if Missouri students are reaching the Show-Me Standards.
The Grade-Level assessments are made up of multiple-choice and machine-scored items and "constructed response" items. Constructed response items require students to supply (rather than select) an appropriate response.
What is the Outstanding Schools Act?
The MAP assessments are required under Senate Bill 380, often referred to as the "Outstanding Schools Act," the state school-reform law enacted in the legislature in 1993. This bill required the State Board of Education to adopt no more than 75 academic performance standards, which established the knowledge, skills, and competencies necessary for students to "successfully advance through the public elementary and secondary education system of this state; lead to or qualify a student for high school graduation; prepare students for postsecondary education or the workplace or both." These Show-Me Standards are guides to what students should be able to know and to do. There are 40 knowledge standards and 33 performance standards.
How can I tell if my child is successful?
The test is scored according to four achievement levels: Below Basic, Basic, Proficient, and Advanced. Missouri's goal is to help students reach the top two categories.
