During the weeks of September 8th through September 19th, students will take tests called Measures of Academic Progress™ (MAP). DAIS will administer the test to all students in grades K-8.
This assessment is used to determine your child’s instructional level as well as measure academic growth throughout the school year. The areas tested are Reading, Language Usage, Math and Science (grade 3-8 only).
The MAP test is unique because it is taken on the computer and can adapt appropriately to your child’s level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing.
Your child will spend approximately 1 to 2 hours per day completing these tests. DAIS will administer the test in the fall and spring of each school year. Following each testing period, you will receive a report showing your child’s growth.
