Testing & Monitoring

Testing & Monitoring

During the 15-16 academic year, MAIA made the decision to adopt Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) as our test of choice to determine students’ academic growth. MAP® creates a personalized assessment experience by adapting to each student’s learning level—precisely measuring student progress and growth for each individual. It provides essential information about what each student knows and is ready to learn within 24 hours of the student’s completing the assessment.

MAIA administers this test in both reading and math in grades 1 – 12, three times a year, and the State of Ohio accepts MAP scores in lieu of its own mandatory exams.

Continuous evaluation of student learning is an integral part of the instructional process in the SABIS® Network. Frequent testing is conducted in order to evaluate student learning and permit timely, positive intervention. Testing students in this way has a number of very important advantages:

  • Students learn to perform well under the pressure of time and other constraints
  • Students develop the ability to focus and to sustain concentration for increasingly long periods
  • Feedback from testing allows close monitoring and follow-up

 

Diagnostic Tests

  • Administered to all new, incoming students
  • Academic “x-ray” to detect pre-existing gaps in knowledge
  • Used to determine grade level placement
  • Determine English/math level or  readiness to leave intensives classes

  • Are computer-scored
  • Count for 20% of a student's total grade in a given subject

 

Periodic Exams

  • Help to isolate "gaps" in student learning
  • Monitor student’s mastery of essential concepts
  • Serve as a re-teaching guide for teachers
  • Test concepts taught in the last three weeks
