Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Testing
The MAP assessment is an adaptive, computerized test in reading, language arts, and math administered to every 7th and 8th grade Middletown Middle School student three times a year in September, December, and May.
When taking a MAP test, the difficulty level of questions is dependent on how well the student answers all previous questions. The questions are tailored to each individual's current instructional level. For instance, as the student answers questions correctly the questions become more difficult and as the student answers questions incorrectly the questions become easier. This is the most accurate way to pinpoint a student's readiness to learn new material and concepts. These assessments determine your child's instructional level and measure academic growth in mathematics and reading from year to year.
