Posted October 7, 2008

We moved in June 2008 after my son completed 3rd grade with a very good report card. When he started 4th grade in Texas he was behind from the first day. After a month he is still struggling. We are doing extra work at home to get him caught up and feel as though we are a year behind in Math.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math and communication arts, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
