MAP Testing at Orchard Place School

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016

This year students in the Des Moines Public Schools will be participating in MAP testing. MAP stands for Measures of Academic Progress which is a testing program developed by the Northwest Evaluation Association and is aligned with the common core.  We will be using this assessment to measure student growth as it will be administered to students three times throughout the year.  We will continue to take the Iowa Assessments in the spring each year.  This assessment provides a different type of data to schools and often is reported to school districts near the completion of the school year.
