TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The Tippecanoe School Corporation is using a new tool to track student success this school year.
The NWEA MAP assessment test will measure each student’s growth in English, math and language arts.
If students answer questions correctly, the questions get harder. If students answers the questions incorrectly, they get easier.
The test will be given three times a year and will show how students are progressing.
“This will give us day-to-day instruction advice, and so we’re really excited about the potential for this assessment,” said Christy Fraley, TSC’s assistant superintendent of elementary instruction.
Unlike ISTEP, teachers will have day-to-day results.
“We’re looking forward to reviewing all of the data and how that’s going to change maybe some of our instruction in the classroom and more targeted assistance and differentiation,” said Fraley.
TSC will show parents results from the test during parent-teacher conferences.
