Test Scores

Standardized tests are one tool for measuring student progress and planning effective instruction. Standardized tests do provide some external validation of program effectiveness. ASB School students in grades 2-8 take the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) tests twice per year.  The MAP test measures students’ academic progress, or growth, in the areas of Language Usage, Reading, Mathematics, and Science.  Using this formative measure of student achievement in addition to classroom assessment, teachers are able to monitor academic progress and plan targeted instruction based on individual student and class areas of proficiency and areas of growth.  Student growth is reported to parents in the fall and spring of each year.
