Secondary MAP Testing – April Session
中学 MAP 考试 – 四月考试安排

Dear Secondary Parents and Students,
亲爱的各位中学部家长和学生您好,

During the next two weeks, students in years 6,7, 8, and 9 will be taking the Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP Test) by NWEA in Reading (English), Language Use (English), and Math. Results of MAP exams will be used as a learning tool to strengthen our teaching practice and enable us to better analyse student data for success. Please note these arediagnostic assessments and are used to help teachers understand where students are at and how to better support their needs. These are not used to provide summative grades and will have no impact on the MYP grades.

在接下来的两周中,6、7、8和9年级的学生将参加NWEA在阅读(英语),语言使用(英语)和数学方面的“学业水平进步评测”考试(即MAP考试)。MAP考试的结果将被用作学习工具,以加强我们的教学实践,并使我们能够更好地分析学生的数据,促进学生在学业上取得成功。请注意,这些考试只是诊断性评估,用于帮助老师了解学生所在的学术水平以及如何更好地因材施教。这些不是用来提供期末成绩的,不会对孩子的中学成绩产生影响。

No specific preparation is required. MAP tests are one determination of your child’s instructional level and academic performance in the areas of math, language, and reading; however, it is important to remember that multiple assessments, both formal and informal throughout the year, give a more complete picture of a student’s progress. You will find more information about MAP by visiting the website dedicated to familieshere(https://www.nwea.org/the-map-suite/family-toolkit/

学生们不需要特别准备。MAP测试是您孩子在数学,语言和阅读方面学习水平和表现的一项评测指标。但重要的是,全年进行的正式和非正式评估均能更全面地了解学生的学习情况。您可以在这里访问专门为家长解释MAP考试的网站https://www.nwea.org/the-map-suite/family-toolkit/,这里有更多关于考试的信息。

MAP tests are unique in that they are adaptive tests, which means that the test becomes more difficult the more questions your child answers correctly. When your child incorrectly answers a question, the test becomes easier. Therefore, your child will take a test specifically created for his or her learning level.

MAP测试的独特之处在于它们是自适应测试,这意味着您的孩子回答正确的问题越多,测试就越困难。如果您的孩子回答错误了一个问题,考试就变得相对容易。因此,您的孩子将参加专门针对其学习水平而设计的测验。

Year 6 Students took the MAP evaluations in the first semester, and the remaining year levels will be taking the assessment for the first time. Results from these assessments will be used to inform teaching and learning for the remainder of the year and into the next academic year. A follow up assessment will be scheduled early in the next academic year.

六年级的学生在第一学期参加了MAP评估,其余的年级将首次参加评估。这些评估的结果将用于在该年剩余时间和下一学年提供教学方面的指导信息。后续评估将在下一学年初进行。

Below is the tentative schedule for MAP assessment. Students are encouraged to treat the diagnostic test like they would any other formative or summative assessment and give their best effort. This data will help teachers with knowing how best to support the students in their classes.

以下是MAP评估的暂定时间表。我们鼓励学生像对待其他任何小测试或者期末考试一样对待MAP测试,并尽力完成。这些数据将帮助老师了解如何更好的教导学生。

As always, please make sure that students arrive on time, well-rested, and well-fed during testing dates. Should you have any questions, please contact Mr. Stuart Simpson in English or Mandarin at ssimpson@uiszc.org or myself at the below email address.

与往常一样,请确保学生在考试期间准时到达,睡眠充足,三餐规律。如有任何疑问,请您通过电子邮件ssimpson@uiszc.org与我们的Stuart Simpson老师联系,他会说英语也会说普通话。

Kind regards,
致以最诚挚的祝福,

Head of Secondary
