The DeKalb County School District (DCSD) utilizes the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) as a universal screener three times a year – Fall, Winter, and Spring. MAP Growth provides assistance in identifying areas of growth based upon your child’s individual needs. Additionally, in an effort to improve teaching and learning, NWEA’s MAP Growth allows teachers and students the opportunity to set goals and track individual student growth throughout the school year.
For the 2020-2021 school year, the district test administration windows are as follows:
- FALL MAP ADMINISTRATION WINDOW: September 21, 2020 – November 11, 2020
- WINTER MAP ADMINISTRATION WINDOW: January 4, 2021 – February 26, 2021
- SPRING MAP ADMINISTRATION WINDOW: April 12, 2021 – May 27, 2021
All students in grades K – 10 will be administered the MAP Growth assessment. The chart below outlines what MAP Growth assessment your child will be administered during each test administration window:
