On Friday, 28 September, we concluded the fall session of our MAP Growth assessments from Grades 2-10. Your child's Student Progress Report is ready for viewing on your ManageBac account, under the 'portfolio' tab. Each report is accompanied by an informational sheet to help you understand your child's MAP results in the different subject areas. Should you need any further support in accessing your child's report, please contact the Primary or Secondary Office.
As part of the introduction on the NWEA Family Report introduction (NWEA, 2019):
What is this report? A summary of how your child is performing academically, as measured by the most recent MAP Growth test.
What is MAP Growth? A test that adapts to your child's responses to measure your child's skill level.
Why is my child taking MAP Growth? MAP Growth scores help teachers check student performance by measuring achievement and growth. Teachers use results to tailor classroom lessons and set goals for students.
What do achievement and growth mean?
Achievement: How well your child has learned skills in a subject compared to similar student nationwide (in the U.S.).
Growth: A measure of your child's personal progress over the year.
What is a RIT Score: The overall score for a subject based on a Rasch unit (RIT) scale that indicates how your child performed in a subject.
The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
