The MAP and Khan Academy @ HTS…

Dear HTS Community:

By now, all our children in grades 2-8 have completed the fall administration of the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment in math and reading (grades 2-8) as well as language usage (grades 3-8). The Student Progress Report that was sent home last week includes your child’s performance in the aforementioned subjects as measured by their RIT score. The RIT score is an equal interval scoring unit developed by Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA), the parent company of the MAP.
Our teachers use this data to differentiate their instruction to meet the diverse needs of all students in their classes. Some parents have asked for strategies on how best to use this data at home to complement our efforts at school. NWEA has partnered with the Khan Academy and connected specific strands of student learning in math to different Khan Academy videos that parents and children can complete, together, at home.
Khan Academy Math Practice Exercises Correlated to RIT for Students in:

Grades K-1
Grades 2-5
Grades 6-8
I hope you find this information helpful. As always, if you have any questions about this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me at school.

Sincerely,
Alex Anemone
