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 late winter MAP administration. 

Will my child participate?

Yes. However, students enrolled in 8th grade ELA-GT or a high school assessed math class including: regular or GT Geometry, Algebra 1, Algebra 2 are exempt from participating in MAP reading and math this school year. 

What device should my child use to participate in MAP?

Their HCPSS issued chromebook.

How will MAP take place?

Eligible students will participate in MAP in their math classes the week of Feb. 6 and in ELA classes the week of Feb. 13. Please contact your child’s individual math and ELA teacher for specific dates.  Make-Ups will take place the week of Feb. 20.

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.
