Getting Started with MAP Skills
Included with our transition to MAP Growth- the two to three times per year assessment system that tracks student performance in Literacy and Math. HUUSD also has a subscript to MAP Skills --which is a skills mastery and progress monitoring assessment that helps teachers drill down to the specific skills each student needs to learn.
MAP Skills is designed to be used between MAP Growth administrations to see exactly what struggling students are missing and advanced students are ready to take on—then adjust instruction in the moment and monitor student progress. While specifically designed for students in Grades 3-8, Skills can be assessed as enrichment for students in grades K-2 and for remediation in grades 9-12.

This graphic shows how Growth and Skills work together to build concepts for improved performance.
While not required during school year 2017-18, teachers should practice using this tool now and throughout the Spring in anticipation of a more formal implementation of the tool in 2018-19. SKILLS will easily support on-going DATA TEAM analysis of student performance and progress monitoring within our MTSS system. SKILLS also provides personalized practice for all students in grades 3-8 and can serve to compliment classroom instruction. Students find the "Missions" engaging and connect instantly to the dashboard view and content management display.
