Alaska Measures of Progress (AMP)
Alaska Measures of Progress (AMP) are the new state assessments for students in grades 3-10. AMP replaces the Standards Based Assessments (SBA), which was administered for the final time in April 2014.
AMP is computer-based and will be administered for the first time in spring 2015. Learn more about the new assessments and technology practice tests at the Alaska Assessments website.
Student Assessment Pilot Test
The district has begun a pilot test of the Measurement of Academic Progress (MAP).
MAP is a nationally-normed assessment for reading, math, and science that compares a student’s achievement level with their peers throughout the country. MAP is used by school districts across the nation to measure student growth and identify learning needs. The Fairbanks School District will use this pilot test to determine if MAP will be a useful tool for assessment of student learning objectives and meet the need for a district-wide, norm-referenced assessment.
If you have questions about this activity, please contact your school principal.
