Yeatman-Liddell Middle School

Yeatman-Liddell College Preparatory Middle School Families,

 

.     I cannot believe that it is almost time for the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP).  The window for testing is as follows: April 20-May 15, 2015. MAP assesses scholars’ progress toward mastery of educational standards. MAP testing includes assessments in the subject areas of communication arts, mathematics and science.


Attendance is always imperative, but from this day until the end of the school year it is vital that our scholars come to school, on time, every day.   Not only do we miss them when they are absent, we want scholars to receive the best education possible.


During MAP testing, attendance is extremely important. I would encourage you to avoid making appointments or checking your scholar out of school early during the testing dates.  Research asserts that scholars tend to perform better when they take tests in their regular testing environment. For this reason, we try to avoid the additional stress to your scholar by singling them out to make up missed tests. I’m certain that just like the Yeatman staff; you too want your scholar to do well in each of their classes and on the MAP!


Because the test has changed to an online format, scholars will have several opportunities to complete practice tests to ensure that they are comfortable with this new process.  In addition, scholars have the opportunity to receive tutoring during and after school.


Yeatman Below is a list of other tips to help your scholar do well on the MAP test:


Make sure your scholar gets a good night sleep.


Make sure your scholar has a good breakfast. Remember, a free breakfast is served daily to all scholars.


Encourage your scholar to do his/her best.


Make sure your scholar is at school on time.


Ask about the test each day. Let your scholar know the test is important and that you care about the results. 


Results of the MAP tests provide the school with information on how your scholar is developing, and we want all scholars to show what they know. Parental support is vital in the motivation of our scholars and by working together I am confident Yeatman will have excellent outcomes.


Please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding MAP testing. I can be reached at (314) 261-8132 or via email at leslie.bonner@slps.org. 


Remember, parents play an important role in educational success.  Thanks a bunch for partnering with us to do what is in the best interest of our scholars.  Go Tigers!!!


Respectfully,
