State Content Assessments[edit]

Grade-Level Assessment - Students in grades 3-8 are tested in communication arts and math. Students in grades 5 and 8 are also tested in Science.

State Content Alternate Assessments[edit]

MAP-A - There is also the MAP-Alternate (MAP-A) designed for students with cognitive disabilities who meet grade level and eligibility criteria.[1] Communication arts is assessed at grades 3-8 and 11, math is assessed at grades 3-8 and 10 and science is assessed at grades 5, 8 and 11. Missouri does not have a 2% modified assessment.
