What is the NWEA MAP?

The MAP assessment is an online adaptive test given to students in K-2nd grade in Reading & Math. It is given three times a year. An adaptive test measures a student’s specific skills by allowing the student to answer questions on a variety of levels which adjusts to the student’s knowledge base. These tests are administered in the morning from 8:00-11:00 a.m. Parents will receive score reports that will provide information regarding each student’s individual progress during the fall of 2019.

What is the ACT ASPIRE?

ACT Aspire is an online criterion-reference test given to students in grades 3-10 in English, reading, writing, math, and science. Criterion-reference tests measure a student’s knowledge of standard specific skills. These tests are administered over a 2 or 3 day period from 8:00-11:30 a.m. Parents will receive score reports that will provide information regarding each student’s individual progress during the fall of 2019.

How Parents Can Help

These assessments are important to our schools because the results help our administrators and teachers plan and determine instructional strategies for the upcoming school year. When a test is given, we encourage parents to help by making sure your student:

  • Gets plenty of sleep the night before the test

  • Has breakfast on the morning of the test

  • Goes to school on the day of the test

  • Does not have any out-of-school appointments on the day of a test

  • Knows that you think he/she will do well on the tests

  • Knows you understand that the test is important

To help students learn at home:

  • Encourage your students to read and read to your student

  • Be interested in your student’s daily school work

  • Talk with and listen to your student daily

Good luck to all our students on their upcoming tests!
