In the fall, we heard a lot about how long MAP tests were taking and wanted to check back in to see if the situation had improved as teachers and students gained expertise with navigating the MAP test. There are also questions here about SBA, OAKS Science, ACT, and PSAT testing.
We recognize there are justifiably strong feelings around this issue. We would like to hear from everyone, no matter where you are on the spectrum of feeling and opinion about standardized testing. If you serve students who take these tests, whether you personally administer them or not, please take 5 - 10 minutes to reply.
The District has presented information about the *average* amount of time students are logged in and actively taking the tests, but we know that does not capture the *actual* impact of on instructional time for a class. We are trying to gain a classroom-level view of how much instructional time these tests - and the preparations around them - are taking for ALL students.
