In Marietta, we believe in empowering families, allowing home to become an extension of a child’s classroom. In an effort to better engage families, Marietta City Schools has updated the district’s assessment webpage with a new video that explains both how to access Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) scores and how to leverage such scores to better support students.
Marietta City Schools invites parents with students in grades K-9 to learn more about this assessment, which is given up to three times per year and gives valuable information to MCS staff and families about how best to support children. MAP is a state-aligned, computerized adaptive assessment program that provides Marietta City Schools educators with the information they need to improve teaching and learning and to make student-focused, data-driven decisions. Educators use the growth and achievement data from MAP to develop targeted instructional strategies and to plan school improvement.
With the help of Sarah Pulley, West Side Elementary School’s TOTY this past year, we offer this video resource to answer two basic questions: 1) where do I find my child’s MAP results, and 2) what should I be doing at home with these results?
