Spring Testing Schedule

March 22, 2018

The Lexington Middle School is entering the Spring testing period of the year! Please make sure students receive adequate sleep, good meals and share with each of them encouraging words to do their best! It is also VERY important that your student is at school during these testing dates! 

Students will be taking both the MAP and the state assessment, which is now called NSCAS. The MAP test is a great assessment that adapts throughout each question to show the students reading and math skills. This MAP test provides a RIT score that in return guides us, as teachers, to help place them in the right courses throughout the year and make adjustments in specific units and lessons during their learning instruction. All of our students will be participating in the assessment! As 8th graders, these RIT scores help place them into their Freshman year courses at the High School. Go ahead and ask your student how he or she did after their MAP test! I beat they will know their RIT score and be able to tell you how they did compared to the fall MAP test!

The state assessment, NSCAS, will also be given. This is a test measuring their grade level skills in both reading and math. 8th graders always have an additional test in Science. These tests are very important! Again, please make sure your student gets a good night rest during their testing dates, has healthy meals, and you provide them with encouraging comments. These results will not be available until after the beginning of the next school year and the state will provide these results to the school and the parents.
