At Mat-Su Central, assessments are viewed as resources for parents and educators to help identify areas of strength and weakness to help parents and students best plan as they move throughout their learning plans. Below are several of the assessments that we have access to.
If you have questions about any of these, please contact your advisor or our counseling staff.
PEAKS – Performance Evaluation for Alaska’s Schools
More resources will be placed here soon. Please check back frequently as we will be updating with new information we receive from the State of Alaska as well as the Mat-Su Borough School District.
MAP – Measures of Academic Progress
Measures of Academic Progress – MAP
MAP is an assessment tool that helps parents view their student’s progress and compare their scores to others around the country and in the district in their same grade. Not only does MAP provide basic information, it also has a lot of instructional information and suggestions for families and advisors. Lastly, there are many other resources that utilize MAP’s scoring guides to help create specific units of study for students in different areas.
The goal of this area is to help parents know what some of those resources are and how to access them once your student has taken the MAP assessment.
Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) creates a personalized assessment experience by adapting to each student’s learning level—precisely measuring student progress and growth for each individual.
