MAP

 

Parent’s Guide to MAP Growth

MAP Growth uses a RIT scale to accurately measure what students know, regardless of their grade level. It also measures growth over time, allowing you to track your child’s progress throughout the school year and across multiple years. Once your child completes a MAP Growth test, they receive a RIT score.

 

The RIT scale precisely measures student performance, regardless of whether they’re performing on, above, or below grade level.


MAP FAQ's

How do schools and teachers use MAP Growth scores?
Teachers can use the score to inform instruction, personalize learning, and monitor the growth of individual students. Principals and administrators can use the scores to see the performance and progress of a grade level, school, or the entire district.

How often will my child take MAP Growth tests?
DISD will provide MAP Growth tests to students at the beginning, middle, and end of the school year (in the fall, winter, and spring).

Is MAP Growth a standardized test?
Unlike a standardized test, MAP Growth is administered periodically during the school year.  Instead of asking all students the same questions, it adjusts to each child’s performance.


Retention Requests

SB 1697 enacted a Parental Option for Student Retention, which allows parents or guardians to opt to have their child repeat prekindergarten;

  • enroll in prekindergarten if the child was eligible to enroll in prekindergarten in the previous school year and has not yet enrolled in kindergarten;
  • repeat kindergarten;
  • enroll in kindergarten if the child would have enrolled in kindergarten in the previous school year and has no yet enrolled in first grade;
  • for grades one through three, repeat the grade the student was enrolled in the previous school year;

If you are interested in requesting Student Retention, you must complete this form. All requests must be submitted prior to 4:00 p.m. on August 1.

 

Process

1. Parent/Guardian and student decide that repeating an allowed course or grade level is appropriate for the student.
2. Parent completes the form (link above) and submits the information.
3. Campus will receive the form and review the information.

  • If the campus agrees with the request, they will make the requested schedule change.
  • If the campus does not agree with the request, they will form a review committee which includes the parent.
  • The parent will meet with the committee, the campus will communicate their concerns.
  • If the parent agrees with the committee, no further action is necessary.
  • If the parent does not agree with the committee, they will request that the school process the request and update the student schedule.
