Please refer to the District Calendar for standardized test dates. MAP (Reading and Math) is administered in the fall, winter, and spring and results will be sent home. The IAR assessment (state examination) is administered in April for grades 6, 7, and 8. The Illinois Science Assessment is administered in May for 8th-grade students. Parents are expected to have their students in school all day for these exams. Please do not schedule medical appointments and other obligations during the school day. Make-ups are scheduled during the school day within the testing window.
Test-taking results are aided by: excellent attendance throughout the year; a positive attitude and strong study habits regarding learning; a good night’s sleep; a healthy breakfast and lunch; and a generally well-managed, consistent schedule.
