Whittemore-Prescott Elementary School
Whittemore-Prescott Elementary School is a place of meaningful learning,
self-discovery, success and acceptance in collaboration with family and community.
It is the mission of the Whittemore-Prescott Elementary to provide a safe, non-threatening
environment where teachers can teach and children can learn. The school will provide for the
growth of the total person, academically, physically, socially, and emotionally through
co-operation and commitment of the home, school, and community
Update from Mrs. Ruthruff
Dear Parent and Community Members,
Our students are taking a MAP® Growth™ test from NWEA® on a computer. We give students MAP Growth tests to determine their instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year. Students K-2 will be taking the Reading and Math test. Students in 3-6 will be taking Reading, Math and Science.
MAP Growth tests are unique in that they adapt to your child’s level of learning. If your child answers a question correctly, the next question is more challenging. If they answer incorrectly, the next one is easier. This results in a detailed picture of what your child knows and is ready to learn—whether it is on, above, or below their grade level.
Since MAP Growth tests provide immediate and accurate information about your child’s learning, it’s easy for teachers to identify students with similar scores that are generally ready for instruction in similar skills and topics, and then plan instruction accordingly.
During our first parent teacher conference, you will receive a report showing your child’s growth, which you can review with your child’s teacher for more insight.
We are truly excited to focus on your child’s individual growth and achievement. For more information about the MAP Growth test, visit: NWEA.org/Parent-Toolkit.
