Standardized Testing + Results
Wisconsin Forward Exam
Garden Homes Lutheran School administers the the state recommended standardized test. These standardized tests are given in the Spring to students in grades 3-8 and measure achievement in reading, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Results are shared with parents after the school receives the data from the scoring service.
Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)
Three times a year, GHLS also gives students in grades K5-8 the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) tests. These tests, all done via computer and on-line, provide a more detailed and frequent assessment of how the students are doing in Math and Reading. Each subject-area test takes about 50 minutes. The results from the MAP tests are shared with parents and used by teachers to identify areas in their instruction that can be improved, thereby making student progress more positive and probable.
