Important Update Regarding MAP Assessments9/28/2020Dear PPS Families,Whether in more typical circumstances or during our current Comprehensive Distance Learning mode, it’s important for our educators to have the best possible understanding of their students’ learning needs (this is one of the reasons we began the school year with our soft start, which prioritized student-teacher connections). One of the tools PPS uses to help teachers with that understanding is the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment.
We had planned to conduct MAP assessments over the next four weeks. However, given the numerous variables and challenges all of us are navigating right now, and considering the feedback we have heard from families and educators, we are suspending the fall testing window. As such, we have suspended MAP assessments for all students this fall. We will re-evaluate the opportunity for assessments later in the school year.
