Student assessment is an on-going and multi-tiered process.  MAP uses assessment tools that evaluate a student’s unique academic, social and emotional development over time.  Instead of traditional letter or numerical grading, the program uses a variety of assessments including portfolios, rubrics, demonstrations of learned skills and concepts, and teacher/student conferences.  Conferences are scheduled regularly and a parent or teacher may request additional conferences at any time.  All students are subject to district and state standardized testing.
