Local students excel in each subject area and each grade level tested
Lee’s Summit R-7 School District students scored above the state average in each tested area at each grade level tested as part of the spring 2016 Missouri Assessment (MAP) program.
Students in Missouri take grade-level MAP tests in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics in grades three through eight, as well as science exams in fifth and eighth grades. High school students enrolled in any of the following courses take End-of-Course exams as part of the Missouri Assessment program: algebra I, biology, English 10 and government. Sophomores enrolled in algebra II also take the End-of-Course exam.
Test results were released by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in September 2016. The spring 2016 tests were newly created assessments in the areas of ELA and math; all MAP assessments measure Missouri Learning Standards.
Because the Spring 2016 assessments in ELA and Math were brand new, achievement data from 2016 tests cannot appropriately be compared to previous years’ data.
Using percent of students scoring proficient or advanced as the measure, R-7 outscored the state average by the following percentages:
