MAP Administration Grades 1-5

During the dates of September 19th - October 20th, students in grades 1-5 will take the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment. The data from the MAP assessment will help schools and teachers measure your student’s academic progress. The MAP test does not affect grades and the difficulty adjusts depending on how your child responds. It is normal for students to only answer about half the questions correctly.  To learn more about the MAP assessment, please visit: 

All students in grades 1 - 5 will take a reading and math MAP assessment. Here are the schedules for Grades 1 - 5 for both reading and math.

Grade 1: 9/21 (Math) + 10/6 (Reading)

Grade 2: 10/4 (Reading) + 10/13 (Math)

Grade 3: 9/30 (Reading) + 10/12 (Math)

Grade 4: 9/29 (Reading) + 10/11 (Math)

Grade 5: 9/28 (Reading) + 10/10 (Math)

It is very important that students are present during these sessions. Please avoid scheduling appointments or other conflicts during these times, as the testing window is limited.

Families are urged to check their eligibility and complete a FARMS application as soon as possible.
