MAP Testing

Hello Centennial Families, 

MAP testing begins January 4, 2023 and will continue until till January 25. The purpose of this assessment is to measure growth and inform instruction. Students in grades 2-5 will take a Math MAP test within these times. Students in grades 2 and 4 will take it on January 5, grades 3 and 5will take it on January 4.

Research has shown that COVID school closures led to significant learning loss for scholars. It is important to accurately measure our student progress in order to give them the support they need. MAP results help our educators understand student needs. 

More information on MAP Testing can be found here.

One of the ways that you can support your student to be ready for the MAP test is to make sure that they have gotten a good night of sleep, making sure they are on time for school and giving them a nutritional breakfast the morning of their test. Breakfast will still be provided at school.
