MSP Testing Next week for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders – May 1st – 4th
The MSP or Measurement of Student Progress test (previously known as the WASL), begins next week for 3rd, 4th, and 5th Graders across Washington State. Please click here to see the complete MSP schedule for Lawton’s 3rd, 4th and 5th graders.
For more information on the MSP, please see the OSPI’s website.
MSP preparation: It is important that students be at school on testing days and that they arrive on time — please do not schedule any appointments for your child during these dates. Students should get at least 8 hours of sleep the night before the tests and eat a hearty breakfast in the morning. Please send your child to school with a water bottle and some healthy snacks to keep energized while testing! This is not a timed test so students can take as much time as they need to finish, and we encourage them to work at a comfortable pace and to check their work over. We appreciate your support and positive encouragement for our 3rd through 5th graders during this testing time!
MAP Testing for all students May 14th through June 1st
The MAP or Measures of Academic Progress is a computer-based assessment program produced by Northwest Evaluation Association or NWEA. Each child spends about 45 minutes completing each test for both reading and math, in the winter and spring, with an option to test in the fall. MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to the appropriate level for your child’s learning. For more on the MAP test, please see the SPS MAP page.
