Map Testing


Better insights, better outcomes

MAP Growth is the most trusted and innovative assessment for measuring achievement and growth in K–12 math, reading, and language usage. These are computer adaptive achievement tests in which the computer adjusts the difficulty of the questions so that each student takes a unique test. The difficulty of each question is based on how well the student has answered previous questions. 

These assessments provide teachers with accurate, and actionable evidence to help target instruction for each student or group of students regardless of how far above or below they are from their grade level. It also connects to the largest set of instructional content providers, giving educators flexibility in curriculum choices.  READ MORE HERE

At St. Gabriel Catholic Parish School School we administer the MAP assessments three times a year to measure a student's growth and maximize their success.

1. Fall Assessments

  • For new students, this assessment provides a benchmark of their current learning level.
  • For returning students, this assessment compares their previous Spring test scores to measure advancement and establish a proficiency profile as they progress from grade to grade.

2.  Winter Assessment provides an opportunity for teachers to see growth and work on areas for improvement.

3.  Spring Assessment provides insight for teachers into how far the student has progressed during the school year. 

In the Summer months, the teachers work together to formulate a learning plan for each student as they enter the next grade for the new school year.
