    Your child will take tests called Measures of Academic Progress®(MAP®). We give students MAP tests to determine your child’s instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year. 

    As we continue to meet the challenges of the federal and state government regarding performance expectations, look to see Valdez Schools continue to forge ahead.  Often times when issues (testing) are tied to the state or federal government, timelines are critically delayed…leaving our children behind!  Look to see localized testing (MAP-Measure of Academic Progress) expanded from our elementary school to the upper grades.  This is credible testing, nationally normed, and able to be given locally at our discretion with results immediately available to our staff allowing for critical planning to occur without the delay of 4-5 months associated with state tests.
