This is the third year the elementary is implementing the American Reading Company (ARC)! Watch this video to see why we love ARC, and why it's been a good fit for our school.
The elementary utilizes NWEA MAP testing three times a year (fall, winter and spring). This norm-referenced test allows us to determine students' strengths and weaknesses in addition to measuring student growth over the year.
Reading Improvement and Monitoring Plans (RIMP) for students in grades 1-3 are determined by their fall NWEA MAP reading scores. Students who score below the pre-determine on-track cut-off score set forth by the state, will be placed on a RIMP. The school can elect to place students on a RIMP if they feel it would be beneficial for the student and their reading success.
RIMP Grade Level Assessment On-Track RIT Score:
Kindergarten MAP Growth K-2: 132
1st grade MAP Growth K-2: 151
2nd grade MAP Growth: 170
3rd grade MAP Growth: 181
* Students who score below the above on-track scores on NWEA MAP, must be placed on a RIMP.
