On Wednesday, April 1st, we gave out awards to students who met or exceeded their MAP growth goals. Students who exceeded their MAP growth goals in all content areas were given an SHI “Mako shark” award because Mako sharks are the fastest sharks in the ocean, just like our students who are the fastest growers. Students who met their MAP growth goals in all content areas received an SHI “Great White Shark” award, because great whites are the second fastest sharks in the ocean.
We hope all of our students work hard to be Mako sharks! There is one last chance this school year for our students to show us just how much they’ve learned and how fast they’ve grown! The last MAP testing session will take place in May and we will be honoring our Mako and Great White Sharks again this spring.

Want to learn more about how to help your child in math? Check out this PDF, which describes which Khan Academy lessons your child should complete depending on their MAP score.
Khan Academy is dedicated to providing a free world-class education for anyone, anywhere. Students can draw from an extensive library of content, including interactive challenges, assessments, and videos from any computer with access to the web.

How it works
MAP has created three PDF documents that connect math goals, sub-goals, and MAP RIT score ranges to Khan Academy math practice exercises via click-able links. Each PDF references one of the following grade level ranges: MPG (K – 2); 2 – 5; and 6+.
First, use your MAP reports to find the RIT score ranges for a given math goal.
Next, use the grade-appropriate PDF to locate that same math goal and approximate RIT range; from there, select a sub-goal.
Consider both the name of the exercise and the Common Core State Standard when choosing the appropriate practice exercise. Click the embedded link in the PDF and try the exercise yourself once you arrive at Khan Academy.
When you’re in Khan Academy, the links to videos and other resources add context to the actual exercise; however, these additional resources aren’t necessarily correlated to MAP/MPG RIT scores.
