MAP (Measures of Academic Progress)
The DeKalb County School District (DCSD) has adopted a new Universal Screener, MAP (Measures of Academic Progress). It is a computer-based tool that will be used to assist in identifying areas of growth based upon students' individual needs. In an effort to improve teaching and learning, MAP allows teachers and students the opportunity to set goals and track individual student growth throughout the school year. In addition, MAP will be utilized as the initial assessment towards gifted identification beginning the 2016-2017 school year for students in grades K-10.
