Testing Instrument Descriptions

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)

Known as Measures of Academic Progress (MAP), this computer-adaptive norm-referenced assessment is produced by the Northwest Evaluation Association.  After a limited fall field test with only grades 4 and 5, EAB administered MAP to students in Grades 6 through 10 in February 2011 and expanded to grades 2 through 8 in May 2011.  In August 2011, MAP will be administered to all students in grades 2 – 11 the three tests of Mathematics, Reading and Language Usage.  The test provides nationally norm-referenced achievement data and Lexile scores, which measure reading performance on a continuous scale across grade levels.  Training for administration and for interpretation of results is offered during the school year.  Supplementary materials and professional development workshops help teachers use information from the MAP tests to determine specific instructional needs. Test results from MAP are available much sooner than with paper-and-pencil tests.  Students who transfer into EAB can be tested immediately to provide placement information.    EAB students take this assessment three times a year, which will show growth in achievement within an academic year.

PSAT

PSAT, which is offered as an optional test, focuses on higher-order thinking and is conceptually linked to the SAT.  Students whose achievement is average and above should be encouraged to take the PSAT at 10th and 11th grades for practice and prediction.  Some students may choose to take the PSAT in earlier grades, as well.  At the eleventh grade, PSAT serves as the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

Light’s Retention Scale

This useful scale helps teachers, parents, and administrators understand the pros and cons of grade retention for students at the elementary and secondary levels (ages 6 through 18 years). It is an economical way to arrive at a sound decision regarding grade retention--a decision that takes into account the individual situation and the needs of the child. The 2006 edition features an updated literature review, which is one of the most comprehensive and current available on grade retention.

Usually completed and discussed during parent/teacher conferences, the scale is composed of 20 categories related to grade retention. The student is rated from 1 to 5 on each of these categories, and a total score is computed. This score tells you whether grade retention would be helpful or harmful to the student in question. The Light's Retention Scale provides opportunities for dialogue between parents and educators, and assures all involved that the decision is based on thoughtful, professional findings. A Parent Guide explains the rating criteria in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner.  This revised edition includes:

  •  consideration of whether or not a student has preschool experience,

  •  an up-to-date review of current findings on both sides of the issue,

  •  a changed score structure for the items,

  •  revised item descriptions, and

  •  new cutoff scores.

Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening (PALS)

The Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening (PALS) consists of three screening instruments, PALS-PreK (for students in K4).  These screenings measure students’ knowledge of several important literacy fundamentals, including print and word awareness, nursery rhyme awareness, name writing, rhyme awareness, beginning sound awareness, alphabet knowledge, letter sounds, concept of word, blending, sound to letter knowledge, spelling, word recognition in isolation and fluency.   

PALS is used at EAB in K4 and provides a consistent and reliable method of evaluating a child’s emerging knowledge in fundamental literacy areas.  Additionally, it helps teachers identify students needing additional literacy instruction while assisting them in providing effective classroom instruction that meets student needs, focusing more on fundamental skills crucial for literacy success.

Fountas and Pinnell

The Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System (BAS) seamlessly and gracefully links assessment to instruction alongThe Continuum of Literacy Learning. This comprehensive system for one-on-one assessment reliably and systematically matches students' instructional and independent reading abilities to the F&P Text Level Gradient™.  Classroom teachers use this assessment system in Grades K5 - 5, three times a year to measure growth on reading.
