The Massachusetts Adult Proficiency Test (MAPT) is used by many state-funded programs to measure student progress. The MAPT provides score reports that give specific information about the domains and difficulty levels of questions students got correct and incorrect when they took the test. Teachers who use CALM (Curriculum for Adults Learning Math) can use these score reports to gain insight into how their classes are going, where they may need to alter their instruction, and where they may need to do further assessment.
- CALM teachers who assess students using the MAPT
- Teachers who want to know more about the MAPT score report
- Teachers who want to know more about CALM
This professional development activity/course is designed for:
This 90-minute, online workshop will cover some key details of what is in the MAPT score report and how to read it. We will look at a sample score report and investigate how to glean information from it that will be useful in making instructional decisions. Then we will explore the resources that are available in CALM for targeted assessment and instruction based on what we see in the score report. We will also discuss the larger questions of assessment types (summative and formative) and the role of assessments in the bigger picture.
Please note: About a week before the event, you will receive a separate email from the SABES Math team at TERC (email@example.com) with instructions on how to access the Zoom session.
