Dear SCVi families,
Thank you to all the families that were able to attend Back to school night last week! We are definitely starting to get into the groove of things and hope you are too.
We are working our way into MAP assessments. You might be wondering, “ Why is my child taking MAP?” or “What is the MAP?” MAP scores provide insight for facilitators on each learner’s individualized ability by measuring achievement and growth. Facilitators use results to tailor and guide lessons as well as to set goals for each learner. This MAP data creates a useful snapshot of how to best meet each learner’s academic needs. While in the classroom, we as educators find it really difficult to not help our learners on the test, especially when they really seem to want to be successful. We have found it is helpful to encourage learners to do their best by reminding them to read and re-read the directions, passage and answer choices when necessary or to stop and truly just think about it for a few minutes. This “think time” often provides the learners the confidence to choose the answer that makes the most sense.
MAP scores are not reflected in a learner’s grade or on their ROP (Report of Progress). They are genuinely one of the many resources that we use to assess each learner’s individual ability along with other formal assessments, work samples and interactions with learners during lessons.
The iLEAD SCVi campus is a very busy place with our amazing TK-12 learners. We love that our campus is so bustling with activity. However, we want to keep reminding everyone to drive slowly and please be vigilant while on campus. The safety of our learners, staff, parents and community is of the upmost importance. Please be extra careful when driving on campus. We thank you for your cooperation.
