MAP Testing Is It Helpful?

                Over 1000 international schools use the MAP tests, our school is one of those. I really don’t like the MAP tests, but they help teachers monitor how much you know. Here are my and others’ opinions about the map test.                                                                                                                                                                                                      Almost all of the seventh grade teachers here at McDowell say that they have mixed feelings about the test. The main good thing teachers said about the map tests are that they help them see how much you have learned. The main bad thing that they said was that the tests take away valuable time that the teachers need to start new lesson plans.                                                                                                                                                                 Most kids had very negative things to say towards the map tests. All of my friends despise the MAP tests, because of how long they take. Honestly when ever I take one I get bored at around the twenty-first question. The only reason I think most kids aren’t completely against it, is that it helps most teachers seeing what they might have to recover. Most kids see the MAP test as a negative thing, because no kids wants to take tests. Our teachers I would say would like it if we didn’t get so many snow days this year.

  1. Thank you for taking a look at this. It makes me wonder what parents think about MAP and what kids think about the ALEX program the math department is trying. It would be great to have a google survey for McDowell students to respond to about MAP and ALEX and then look at the data as we make decisions for next year. Keep being a voice for yourself and your peers!
