"Why MAP Testing?"
MAP Testing replaces paper assessment tests.
Lucia Mar students take assessment tests three times a school year.
The frequency of tests has not increased, but the format has changed.
Assessment tests are used for upper division placement in classes:
6th grade assessments are used to place students in Algebra and Writing in 7th grade.
8th grade assessments are used to place students in Algebra and Writing in 9th grade.
MAP scores will be used for these placements in upcoming school years.
