Spring MAP Testing to Run–> April 17-28

Dear Parents,

From April 17th to April 28th DAIS students are scheduled to take tests called Measures of Academic Progress™ (MAP).  We give students MAP tests in September to determine their initial instructional level and again in April/May to measure academic growth throughout the school year, and from year to year in the areas of Reading, Language Usage, Math and Science. Your child will take the tests on a computer.

MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to the level appropriate for your child’s learning.

As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. For about 40-60 minutes each day for 2-5 days, the Kindergarten to Grade Eight students will either go to the computer lab for testing or write the test on their laptop.  This testing is done in the morning so that students are full of energy.

Following each testing period, you will receive a report showing your child’s growth; this will be followed-up by a parent presentation explaining how to interpret the data provided, this presentation will also share with you the school wide test results.

We are excited to be gathering our second set of data this year. These tests, along with other teacher created assessments allow us to individualize your child’s learning program.

Plenty of rest and a good breakfast will help to set your child up for success when writing the MAP tests.  No homework will be assigned to your child the night before a MAP test, thereby allowing them extra time for outdoor play.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Lory Thiessen
