MAP Q & A
What is MAP and Why are students taking it?
MAP is the Measures of Academic Progress assessment. Most students in grades 2-8 will take the assessment in the area of reading and math. The data from the MAP assessment will help schools and teachers measure growth from the Fall MAP administration to the Spring MAP administration.
Should my child participate?
Yes. However, if your child is in 8th grade ELA-GT either semester 1 or semester 2, they are exempt from participating in MAP Reading on May 19. Please note if your child is in a high school assessed math course during semester 1 or semester 2 (regular or GT Geometry, Algebra 1, Algebra 2) they are exempt from participating in MAP Math on May 26.
What device should my child use to participate in MAP?
The same device your child is using to attend virtual and in-person classes.
How will MAP take place?
Students will be logging into their Cougar Time groups with their teachers. Once there the teacher will guide your child to the MAP testing site by providing a direct link and testing session code.
Will MAP impact my child’s grades?
The MAP assessment does not affect grades and the difficulty adjusts depending on how your child responds. It is normal for students to only answer about half the questions correctly.
Where & When will MAP Reading take place?
With your child’s current virtual or in-person Cougar Time class from 8:30 a.m.- 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 19.
Where & When will MAP Math take place?
