MAP Testing: What do Parents Need to Know?

The Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) testing for students in all Parkway schools will take place this year beginning March 31 through April 25.  MAP tests are mandated by the state and are intended to help determine what a child knows and is able to do according to the expectations for his or her grade level.***** Scores on the MAP tests are also used to determine how schools are performing according to state and federal guidelines.
