Welcome TEAM KINDNESS students and parents! PLEASE NOTE: This website is an extra tool that parents and students may use to keep track of assignments and school events. It should NOT be considered the primary source of homework assignments for the day, nor take the place of the Planner. There may be days that we are unable to access this site in order to update it. It is the responsibility of the student to fill out his/her own planner each day in every class. We appreciate your support.

Thank you!



*Standing Assignments*
-Come to class everyday prepared with all supplies, materials, and assignments.
-Replenish school supplies as needed (i.e. paper, pencils)
-Look over and study your class notes each night.
-Make sure you have a book (or other reading material) with you at all times.


Parent Information on MAPs test scores for Reading

Testing Timeframe: Testing occurs during the fall, winter, and spring of a school year.

Grade: Grade of the student during this test.

Percentile Rank: This indicates how well a student performed in comparison to students in the norm group from across the United States. A student’s percentile rank indicates that the student scored as well as, or better than, the percent of students in the norm group. For example, a student with a percentile ranks of 72 scored as well as, or better than 72% of the students in the norm group.

Low, Average or High Scores on the Following Reading Performance Areas:

High: Score is in the top third of expected scores (percentile score equal to or greater than 66).

Average: Score is in the middle third of expected scores (percentile score between 66 and 33).

Low: Score is in the bottom third of expected scores (percentile score equal to or less than 33).

READING

Word Analysis and Vocabulary: This analyzes a student’s ability to use appropriate strategies of

decoding (e.g. illustrations, phonics, word patterns, context clues) to recognize unknown words when reading material; learn and use high frequency root words, prefixes, and suffixes to understand word meaning; use word origins to construct the meanings of new words; determine the meaning of a word in context when a word has multiple meanings; and recognize specialized vocabulary.

Reading Strategies and Comprehension: This indicates a student’s ability to make and justify predictions; state facts and details of text; identify explicit main ideas; distinguish between significant and minor details; differentiate between fact and opinion; identify structure (e.g. description, compare, cause/effect, sequence) of nonfiction text to improve comprehension; summarize information; make generalizations; and critically evaluate information from multiple sources.

Literature: This indicates a student’s ability to identify characters, settings, and elements of plot; understand and use literary terms (e.g. foreshadowing, metaphors, similes, symbolism, flashback, scene, dialogue); and identify literary techniques (e.g. satire, dialogue, figurative language).

Literary Words: This indicates a student’s ability to understand how literary elements and techniques are used to convey meaning; classify major types of fiction and nonfiction; use textual structure, word choice, and style to identify detail that reveals the author’s viewpoint; evaluate the impact of the author’s word choice, language structure, and syntax; and support assertions with evidence from the text.

Lexile Score Range: A Lexile is a unit for measuring the difficulty of a text. Many reading programs and publishers report the difficulty of a text using a Lexile score. Your child should be able to comprehend books that have a Lexile score in the range listed in this mailing. (More information on Lexile scores is available through the Lexile website at www.lexile.com.)

RIT Score: Actual score on this MAP Reading Test. This score can show student gains by comparing the RIT score on this test to the RIT score on previous tests (when available). The RIT score makes it possible to follow a student’s educational growth from year to year.
