MAP testing

Students in Grades 3 to 7 took 3 MAP® Growth™ tests from NWEA® (Language, Maths and Reading) this week.

MAP Growth tests are unique, as they adapt to student's responses to measure skill levels in particular areas. If a question is answered correctly, the next question is more challenging. If there is an incorrect answer, the next question is easier. MAP Growth scores and feedback help provide a picture of what each student knows and is ready to learn, and are useful for teachers to see a picture of each student as an individual learner to plan instruction accordingly.

MAP Growth reports also provide typical growth data for students who are in the same grade, subject, and have the same starting performance level. These tests are taken again in April to help measure the growth of each student.

This year, Gr. 6 and 7 students took the testing in the Multi Purpose Hall. It is a huge benefit for all of us since it allowed us to use the time and space more effectively, and created less disruption in classes and more time for learning.
