9th graders will start MAP testing on Monday, May 15

9th graders will start MAP testing on Monday, May 15. Students are required to take a reading and math section (each taking approximately 1.5 hours) of the test. The first run of testing will go through May 19. Makeups will be the week of May 22. Students are scheduled to start the test in their English class (Reading) and Physical Science class (Math) and work through the following class period to allow enough time for test completion. They may miss the class period following their English or Physical Science class. For example, if a student has English during second period they may miss third period based on the time it takes them to complete their test. The testing schedule for both the Math and Reading sections is available on the Washburn website, found under Academics > Testing Information. Any further questions, please contact Tara Mennitt (
