Standardized tests are only one small tool for measuring student learning and planning effective instruction. Such tests do, however, provide some external validation of program effectiveness. ASB School students in grades 2-8 take the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) tests three times each year (fall, winter, and spring). The MAP measures students’ academic progress, or growth. By having precise measurement of student achievement, teachers are able to monitor academic progress and parents are kept informed of the progress their children make in basic skill areas.
