Dear YES Families,

During the weeks of October 12 and 19 all of our students will be taking NWEA MAP assessments. Grade 2 students will take the NWEA Measures of Academic Progress for Primary Grades (MPG), the same assessment they took if they attended Rowe School last year. All grade 3 and 4 students will take the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) for upper elementary grades.  These tests and scores help teachers check student performance by measuring achievement and growth and help to inform instruction. We also utilize these assessments as one of the data points that helps to inform instructional support programming for students.

Our Fall 2020 NWEA MAP assessment dates for hybrid students are as follows:

  • Tuesday, October 13: Cohort 2- Reading Assessment
  • Thursday, October 15: Cohort 1- Reading Assessment
  • Monday, October 19: Cohort 1- Math Assessment
  • Tuesday, October 20: Cohort 2- Math Assessment

As I shared with you earlier the results of the MAP assessments from this fall, along with a letter from me helping to explain the assessment, will be sent home once they are all completed. 

Have a good day,

Ryan Gleason, YES Principal
