AnswerFrom our counselor, Sekai Chitaukire: The Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) is an adaptive computer-based test which tracks a student’s academic progress over time. At ISL, students from Y3 to Y9 take the MAP Reading and MAP Math tests at the beginning of the academic year and again at the end of the year. Here at ISL, we use the MAP test as an internal assessment to help inform teaching and learning. Parents are privy to their child’s test results upon request.
Accommodations are provided for students in line with test administration guidelines. The decision to provide such accommodations is made with input from the student’s teacher and Learning Support and/or ESOL departments.
Mark Fox adds - We do not currently use this for teacher evaluation.
