New Assessment for K-9th Learners
CISD is excited to be implementing a new assessment tool this school year called the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) Measures of Academic Progress (MAP). This assessment will help measure growth and skill mastery for our Kindergarten-9th grade learners. Your child/ren will be taking the online assessment twice during the school year. Once during our fall testing window and once during our spring testing window. Our fall testing window currently is open, and we are now working to ensure all of our educators have access to the data and a clear understanding of how they can use the data in order to differentiate instruction to support overall learners needs. Our Kinder-2nd grade learners are taking a reading and math assessment. Our 3rd-8th grade learners are taking a reading, math and science assessment, and our 9th grade learners are taking a reading and math assessment. Our campuses will be working with all of our families on sharing the data during the month of October. Until then, visit the MAP Parent Toolkit at https://www.nwea.org/parent-toolkit/ for insight into what you will receive about your child’s assessment data.
