MAP Assessments Begin August 28

Dear Families,

Our learners utilize the MAP NWEA computer-adaptive assessment three times per year: fall, winter, and spring. The MAP assessment is a vital part of our holistic approach to education, as evidenced in our Individualized Learning Plans (ILPs).

  • MAP enables us to see how your child progresses toward their academic Individual Learning Plan (ILP) goals, which we set at the beginning of the year, along with an action plan nurtured by our school community, including parents, families, learners, and facilitators. iLEAD Agua Dulce embraces the whole child, focusing on both social-emotional and academic skills. The ILP is an integral part of this framework, ensuring that each child is respected and treated as an essential part of the ILP team, encouraged to be a self-directed learner and, therefore, work toward attainable self-created goals aligned to one’s individual development.
  • Educating the whole child, we measure progress and emphasize growth versus final outcome and summative assessments. Thus, the fall assessment gives us a baseline that will allow us to determine and document your child’s growth throughout the year.
  • As a school that emphasizes each learner’s individual growth and educational journey, MAP is an important measure we use to document and show our progress to our local district authorizers, who in turn determine our school’s renewal status.
  • The MAP results, which will be shared with you after the assessments are completed, allow us to personalize each child’s learning path by identifying areas of strength as well as areas that need additional support and extension.

Our MAP assessments begin on Monday, August 28. Thank you for ensuring that your child is present and arrives to school on time.
