Tests measure knowledge learned over school year

With the school year winding down, Cassville schools would like to remind parents that students will be taking the MAP test in May, aiming to get students prepared to do their very best.

Known as the Missouri Assessment Program, MAP testing is a standardized, state-mandated test that measures a student’s progress in all subjects to help determine what they’ve learned over the course of the school year.

Different grades will be testing on different days during the two-week testing period, said Jill LeCompte, assistant superintendent.

“Grades third through eighth will be taking the MAP test from May 1-15,” she said. “Certain grades will take certain tests on different days, such as communication arts one day, science, another, and math, another. We try to spread the grade levels apart, but some days it will overlap.”

Testing is conducted online in each classroom.

LeCompte offered a few words of advice to parents to help their child do their best.

“Getting plenty of sleep and making sure they get breakfast will make a positive difference in their child’s assessment experience,” LeCompte said.
