Standardized Testing


Fall & Spring

MAP, or the Measure of Academic Progress, is a computerized adaptive test which helps teachers, parents, and administrators improve learning for all students and make informed decisions to promote a child’s academic growth.

Tests for mathematics and reading are given to grades K-8.  Tests for language usage are given in grades 2-8 and science is given to grades 6-8.  These tests yield a national percentile score as well as a growth scale score (RIT). 


Kansas State Assessment


The Kansas Assessment Program, a program of the Kansas State Board of Education, is mandated by the Kansas State Legislature.  In addition, the English language arts (ELA), mathematics, and science assessments are a part of the federal elementary and secondary education legislature.  The Kansas Assessments are administrated by using the Kansas Interactive Testing Engine® (KITE).



Fall, Winter, & Spring

Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills® (DIBELS) are a set of procedures and measures for assessing the acquisition of literacy and math skills.  They are designed to be short (one minute) fluency measures used to benchmark, assess, and monitor progress of literacy and math skills in Kindergarten – 8th.  We test our students three times a year, in September, January, and March, using the DIBELS software.
