The Freeport School District is rolling out more personal standardized tests.
The new assessment is known as the Measures of Academic Progress Test, and is adaptive. Unlike the ISAT and PARCC, it adjusts the difficulty of questions in real time based on students answers. This means if a student is doing well, they'll receive harder questions, while if they're performing poorly, the questions will get easier.
Officials hope the progress test, or MAP, can provide more accurate student metrics as it’s given several times per year.
