Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Assessment
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 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. The Math test will be offered on October 14 at 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. 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. Students should log into the session promptly at the start time (9am or 1pm) using their math teacher's regular Google Meet class code.
