Assessment, or testing, fulfills a vital role in today's education environment. Educators use assessment results to help improve teaching and learning and to evaluate programs and schools. Assessment is also used to generate the data upon which policy decisions are made. Educational assessment is a foundation activity in great schools and districts. It is vital to innovation, higher standards, and educational excellence.
Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) Including EOC Tests
MAP tests are an educational assessment mandated by the Outstanding Schools Act of 1993. As a result of this act, the State Board of Education directed the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to identify the knowledge, skills, and competencies that Missouri students should acquire by the time they complete high school and to evaluate student progress toward those academic standards. The MAP includes the following assessments:
- Communication Arts, Grades 3-8 and 10
- Mathematics, Grades 3-8 and 9
