what about testing?
Lakeview students in grades K - 8 participate in MAP® Growth™Testing three times per year. MAP® Growth™ measures what students know and what they're ready to learn next. MAP Growth creates a personalized assessment experience for each student that accurately measures performance and gives feedback to teachers that allows them to identify areas of strength, as well as areas in need of improvement. Classroom instruction can then be adjusted as necessary. It is our belief that over-testing students can negatively affect the school environment. This assessment method gives teachers a valuable, informative measure of growth and actionable results to support student success.
