Let’s Celebrate Academic Success

UNDERSTANDING THE DATA

The MAP test is the state-mandated standardized assessment that provides information on how well students are learning the Missouri Learning Standards. Last year, 159 LPA students in grades 3-7 took the MAP test in the Spring.

Subgroup Achievement measures performance of students in the state-identified subgroup, which includes African-American students, Hispanic students, low income students, English language learners and students with disabilities. LPA had 111 students (69%) in grades 3-7 classified within the subgroup last year.

MAP measures achievement in three ways: Growth, Progress and Status.

  • Growth measures the change in achievement scores for individual students over time.
    • Whole School: LPA exceeded growth targets in English and Math
    • Subgroups: LPA exceeded growth targets in English and Math
  • Progress indicates annual improvement on MAP assessments
    • Whole School: LPA exceeded progress targets in English and Math
    • Subgroups: LPA exceeded progress targets in English and Math
  • Status reflects the school’s level of academic achievement 
    • See the chart below for our achievement in this area

We have exceeded targets in both growth and progress. Individual students made great gains in both subgroups and as a full group (Growth). The school made great gains as a whole and in subgroups (Progress). As evidenced above, we have also made big gains in achieving our “status” goals. This is a true testament to the hard work of our students, families and teachers.
