On Wednesday October 7 and 14, students in grades 2-8 will take the Measured Academic Progress (MAP) assessment. The data from the MAP assessment will help schools and teachers measure where your child is starting the year academically. The HCPSS intends to also give the assessment in winter and spring to measure how your child’s learning is progressing throughout the year. The MAP test 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.

The Reading test will be offered on October 7 at 9 am and 1 pm. The Math test will be offered on October 14 at 9am and 1pm. Students may choose to attend either the morning or afternoon session. If your child is unable to attend, makeup testing will be offered during asynchronous learning times. Teachers will share Google Meet information and your student’s testing group as we get closer to the Oct 7th date.
MAP testing will be administered on October 7 and 14. As a result, the following adjustments will be made for the weeks of October 7 and 14:
No Dreambox assignments will be assigned on Wednesday
No Lexia Core5 assignments will be assigned on Wednesday
No mathematics task will be assigned on Wednesday
No changes will be made for related arts and science asynchronous assignments.
