District Testing:  Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)

The Olympia School District tests every student each spring in grades 2 through 8 on the MAP Reading and Math assessments.  MAP is a computer adaptive multiple choice test.  The scores are based on a growth model that goes up as the student answers more difficult questions.  The goal is to monitor the progress of each student from year to year.

State Testing:  Smarter Balanced

The Smarter Balanced tests are given each spring and report student levels of achievement on state achievement targets in English Language Arts and Mathematics.

College Bound Students:

At the high school level, the PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test), the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test), the AP (Advanced Placement) tests, the ACT (American College Testing) and IB (International Baccalaureate) tests are administered to those who choose to take them.
