This week Maywood students will be taking MAP “Measures of Academic Progress”  tests in the following areas: math, reading. language arts and science. Special rooms have been set up that are quiet, comfortable and conducive to testing. Some simple ways to prepare for big tests like MAP are to get a good night’s sleep the night before and to eat a nutritious breakfast the day of. Even if your child is not a "breakfast person," encouraging them to eat even a piece of toast with peanut butter and a glass of milk or juice, will give them the much-needed mental energy to focus on tests. 

More importantly, however, performing well on the tests has a positive impact on students’ lives. When students see improvement in their scores on assessments like MAP and NeSA, it raises their self-confidence, and shows them that hard work and determination can make a difference. Students begin to see their successes directly related to the amount of effort they put forth.  That is why it’s very important that teachers, students and parents work together to improve achievement scores.  Following a routine of getting plenty of rest and proper nutrition gives your mind rest and energy to think hard for the day’s tests.
