Parent Flyer Available for 2018 3rd Grade Reading Assessment

Help parents of 3rd graders learn about key dates and requirements for the 2018 3rd Grade Reading Assessment with this flyer.

The Literacy-Based Promotion Act requires all 3rd grade public school students to pass a reading test in order qualify for promotion to the 4th grade.

The reading portion of the Mississippi Academic Assessment Program (MAAP) English Language Arts (ELA) test will determine whether students meet the requirement for promotion. Students who do not meet the promotion requirement on the MAAP test will be given two retesting opportunities on an alternative test. The alternative test is called the 3rd Grade Reading Alternative Assessment.
