During the first nine weeks of school, we spend some time assessing where students are in a variety of ways. Teachers use classroom assessments in addition to district wide assessments. Next week, our second through fifth grade students will be taking the online Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment in reading and math.
2nd Grade - Sept 8 (reading) and Sept 9 (math)
3rd - 5th - Sept 13 (reading and Sept 14 (math)
Tips for Parents
Ways to help your child prepare for testing: Meet with your child’s teacher as often as needed to discuss his or her progress. Ask the teacher to
suggest activities for you and your child to do at home to help prepare for tests and improve your
child’s understanding of schoolwork. Parents and teachers working together benefits students.
ƒ Provide a quiet, comfortable place for studying at home.
ƒ Make sure that your child is well rested on school days and especially the day of a test. Children who
are tired are less able to pay attention in class or to handle the demands of a test.
ƒ Give your child a well-rounded diet. A healthy body leads to a healthy, active mind.
ƒ Provide books and magazines for your child to read at home. By reading new materials, a child learns
new words that might appear on a test. Ask your child’s school about a suggested outside reading list
or get suggestions from the public library.
