Circle uses the NWEA MAP (Measures of Academic Progress™) to assess student progress. There are three subject tests (language, math, and reading) for each student. You will need to schedule a time slot for each of the three sections. You may only complete one subject per time session. There are two-time slots available each day, 9:00 am and 12:00 noon. Testing is available on the dates located in the sign up calendar below.

Circle requires testing every year for students in grade 3 and above. Circle does not require students below third grade to test. Testing is optional for these students. However, students below third grade should not test unless they are strong, independent readers. High school students are not required to test if they took the PSAT, PLAN, ACT, or SAT this school year.

This page contains everything you need and consists of three parts:
