Academic Action Plans and the LHS MAP Goal Setting Process

October 12, 2018

Late in the month of October and into November, students will be involved with academic goal-setting conversations with their period two teacher; 9th grade Foundations of Leadership / 10th, 11th, and12th grades Focus Period.   Seniors will review their MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) score history noting a ‘best ever’ score for Math and Reading as well as best ACT score as of September 2018, then sign and date the goal sheet for the archives. This is one piece of information that can be used in planning a student’s direction for life after high school.  Freshmen and sophomores will review best MAP ever scores and create an academic work plan with a goal equaling at least the expected normed growth in scores from the fall to spring test season.  Juniors will create an academic work plan focusing on ACT preparation for the statewide ACT exam for all juniors in April of 2019.  

MAP assessment scores indicate what a student is ready to learn and a very helpful tool in predicting probable ACT performance and college/career readiness.

This will mark the eighth year LHS has used this academic goal setting format. Make it a priority to learn about the assessments used by your school district and how score data is used as a tool to improve learning.    Mrs. Bergstrom
