NWEA Maps Testing

Your child took the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) tests in the fall and the spring.  These tests show your child’s growth throughout the school year in mathematics, reading, and language usage. An individual report for your student will be sent home with his/her report card.


MAP tests are adaptive tests your child takes on the computer.  The test became more difficult as your child answered questions correctly.  When your child answered incorrectly, the test became easier.  Therefore, your child’s test was geared specifically for them as an individual rather than just grade-level.  Questions are aligned to the Nebraska State Standards which means the material is covered in the classroom each day.  Your child’s RIT score is a unit of measure that reflects the instructional level at which your child is currently performing regardless of age or grade.


Please download the Maps Parent Tool kit for more information on how to read your student’s individual maps report.

Child Identity Theft
In Internet 7, the students have been studying about Scams and Schemes as it relates to Identity Theft. A video on identity theft was shared with the students. This video does an excellent job of explaining child identity theft and the steps a child and parent can take to keep it from happening to them. The link for the video the students watch is below.

"Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."
Robert F. Kennedy Capetown, June 6th 1966
