Other Testing

MAP Testing
All students will be tested in the Fall and the Spring.  Some students may also be tested during the Winter session.  
MAP, or the Measure of Academic Progress, is a computerized adaptive test which helps teachers, parents, and administrators improve learning for all students and make informed decisions to promote a child's academic growth.

       This document shows the specific goal areas for the math, reading and language tests for NeSA tests prior to 2016/17 school years.
