Students Test 1-2 years above grade level

The MAP test is one of several tools that NCA uses to evaluate student performance. We are careful not to measure students on the basis of one test alone. As part of a balanced assessment program, students take the MAP test to help us:

    • Find out where each student is performing in Reading, Language Usage, and Math
    • Identify a child’s academic strengths
    • Identify areas where a child may need to improve
    • Keep track of student progress and growth in basic skills over the school year and are able to adjust teaching strategies to meet the student needs
    • Set goals
    • Enhance our parent-teacher partnership in the education process
