MAP Testing Time
End-of-the-year MAP testing is currently in progress for all iLEAD learners. Whether your family has finished the assessments or is just getting started, it’s always important to know the WHY behind what you’re doing.
The MAP test is one way of providing good feedback on your child’s academic strengths as well as areas needing support. This spring, we are all participating in the “Growth” version of the testing, which simply means that it is an adaptive, more comprehensive assessment. Parents will notice there is a broader range of questions (anywhere from 40 to 52). Adaptive also means that, depending on how your child answers each question, the skills and concepts adjust across multiple grade levels to calculate better results. Results are quick and can be collected from the NWEA program within a few days, and your EF will email you the results.
The reports will include scores for every year your learner has taken the tests, providing continuous tracking and standardized results from each year. This is beneficial for targeting your instruction and planning support for the needs of your individual learner.
In addition, it demonstrates to the state and our authorizer that our learners are making progress. This became especially imperative this spring, as iLEAD was approved to utilize benchmark testing in lieu of the usually scheduled CAASPP testing. All these pieces are important for keeping our accreditation and charter. iLEAD appreciates your support, and we are so proud of all our learners!
