Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments in reading, math and language use are administered twice a year (Fall and Spring) to students in grade three through ten. MAP assessments are criterion-referenced, meaning they generate a score based on a level of knowledge and skill, not dependent on grade level. Scores are benchmarked against international norms. Numbers exclude students on formal intervention and Individualized Learning Program (Test data from 2020 is absent due to no tests being carried out in second half of the school year due to Covid-19).
