Students in the Superior Diocese Catholic schools are regularly assessed to determine their skill and ability levels.
The results of the tests are used to help best meet the individual needs of each learner. In addition to the regular progress monitoring which is done by teachers on a daily basis in the content areas, learning is also measured through standardized testing.
MAP dynamically adapts to a student’s responses – as they take the test.
In this way, the test narrows in on a student’s learning level, engaging them with content that allows them to succeed.In the past, regular paper and pencil standardized testing was given once a year. A problem with this was that schools did not get the results for months.
Students in grades three through eight participate in the MAP assessment.
