2018 Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) Schedule
Posted on 04/23/2018
MAP Schedule

The Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) is designed to measure how well students acquire the skills and knowledge described in the Missouri Learning Standards (MLS). They are one way we ensure we are meeting children’s needs and help students determine whether or not they are meeting their educational goals. No matter if students plan to attend college or start training for promising careers after high school graduation, they deserve high expectations and a high-quality education.

Again this year, all assessments, including the 3‐8 grade‐level assessments (GLA) and end‐of‐course assessments (EOC), will be a computerized assessment.

In Affton, April 24 begins Grade-Level Assessment (GLA) testing as part of MAP for all students at Rogers Middle School, and April 30 for grades 3-5 at Gotsch Intermediate School.

The specific testing schedules vary by school, however, all students in grades 3, 4, 6 and 7 take assessments in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Students in grades 5 and 8 take assessments in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science.

Affton High School (and some Rogers Middle School) students will take End-of-Course (EOC) assessments as part of MAP beginning April 23. Once again this year, all high school juniors took the ACT free of charge on Tuesday, April 3.

Teachers and students have worked hard to prepare for the assessments and are eager to show what they have learned throughout the school year.

Here are some important testing reminders for parents:

  • Attendance is crucial on testing dates.
  • If your child does not ride the bus, please make sure that they are at school on time.
  • Be certain that your child has had adequate rest (this may mean getting them used to an earlier bedtime before the week of testing).
  • Feed your child a healthy breakfast — their brains need plenty of fuel!
  • Encourage your child to relax when taking the test.
  • If your child is anxious, please encourage them to see their counselor or a teacher to ask any questions.
  • Have a positive attitude about testing.

High-quality assessments are effective tools that educators, parents, and students can use to understand and measure student progress in a meaningful way. We use assessments – at the classroom, school, district and state levels – to make critical decisions about instruction, interventions and support, and policies.

Good luck to all of our #afftonstrong students!
