Fall Testing

MAP Testing

Students in 9th grade finished taking the MAP test in early October.  Students will start receiving their test scores (both Math and Reading) in their English classes in the next few weeks.  The score report will include a helpful Score Interpretation Guide provided by NWEA Map Growth (the test vendor).  

The MAP test is a good predictor of student's ACT scores.  Therefore, students can put in their MAP scores into this website: https://www.nwea.org/research-data-galleries/mapping-the-road-to-college/ to "map their road" to college.

 

PSAT TEST

Students took the test on October 11, 2017.  Scores will be released the first week of December to schools.  Students will receive scores the 2nd week of December.  These dates should be the same even if the student took the test at an alternative location, but not an alternative date (10/14 or 10/25).
