Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) is a computer adaptive test created by Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) that students take three times per school year. Computer adaptive tests adjust to each student’s learning level, providing a unique set of test questions based on their responses to previous questions. As the student responds to questions, the test responds to the student, adjusting up or down in difficulty. The results provide teachers with information to help them deliver appropriate content for each student and determine each student’s academic growth over time.
MAP testing at Our Lady Star of the Sea School is done in late September, January, and May. It is administered to students in grades 2-8.
The mission of Our Lady Star of the Sea School is to provide an academically excellent, Christ-centered education that reinforces Catholic values and traditions, fosters respect for self and others, and encourages the continual spiritual, intellectual, creative, physical, social, and emotional growth of all.
