Pinckney, Mich., December 5, 2018: St. Mary School in Pinckney has announced results from the MAP Growth Assessment Tests in grades 3-8 for Fall 2018.
Students who take the MAP Growth test receive a number called a RIT score for each area they are tested in (reading, language usage, math, or science). This score represents a student’s achievement level at any given moment and helps measure their academic growth over time.
RIT scores at St. Mary students exceed the national average by almost 4%, with the biggest area of strength being science, scoring 7% higher than the national norm.
“Standardized test scores really give the school a good view into the strengths and opportunities of our curriculum and teaching proficiency,” explained Principal Veronica Kinsey. “Although we’re pleased with the scores, we strive to improve each semester and provide an excellent learning experience for our students.”
St. Mary is enrolling new students and will host an open house at 10601 Dexter-Pinckney Rd in Putnam Township on Wednesday, January 30 from 6-7:30pm. School tours can be scheduled before then by contacting the school at 734-878-5616 or https://stmarypinckney.org/school/contact-our-school/.
