MAP Growth Testing
We are excited to introduce a new testing tool that will help us help your students. MAP testing will be testing what your students know, then give us (you, your student, and teachers) feedback on how best we can work together for academic success. This will be replacing our previous testing methods with ITED. For more information, click on the link below.
