Middle School students have been working on M.A.P. testing. M.A.P. stands for Measures of Academic Progress. This test measures the growth that each student makes throughout a year's time. Students will retake the tests again at the end of the year. Results will show the progress made throughout the year.
Teachers can use the data to drive instruction throughout the year and make adjustments to accomodate their own strengths and weaknesses. Lynchburg-Clay has been M.A.P. testing for several years now and can show several data points for each child that has been in out district continually.
