Our MAP testing session for the fall will take place between September 14th and 22nd 2020. Students in G3-G5 will participate. This is the first test of the year and will give us a benchmark and data to support where your child is in their math and language learning journeys, this second test, taken in May, will allow us another data point to review their progress over the year and assess the programme. We can use the results to support individual students, further develop the curriculum, and to assist with setting future goals.
We realize that the students in G4 and G5 only participated in one testing session last year and that it is new to our G3s. The teachers are working with the students to review and discuss study skills. The tips below are ways you can support your children.
If you wish to practice informally please use the Khan Academy website as it offers the best support.
Please do not worry or stress your children, just remind them to do their best and let them know that their results and efforts will help the teachers plan for their learning. Your children have been practicing in class and are aware of the purpose and expectations. Below is some further information for you regarding the process. To support your child here are a couple of handy helpful tips:
- Get a good nights sleep
- Be at school on time so as not to provide any additional stress
- Eat a good breakfast
- Avoid anxiety – Don’t set high expectations or over discuss the process, your child will do their best and that’s what we want to see from them.
