Students at HAS will be participating in Measure of Academic Progress (MAPs) testing, which will take place twice a year, September and April, and is for students who are in first-tenth grade. This is a computerized test that is Common Core based and covers the subjects of Math, English, and Science. The test is adaptive to each student’s performance and level and modifies accordingly to show student growth. This means that the test adjusts to each student’s individual response creating a personalized test for every person taking it. This will help not only assess the level of the students, but also help teachers and administrators to better plan curriculum and instructional strategies to meet the individual needs of students. This is an innovative new way of testing that will help ensure the educational success of our students here at HAS.
