Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) Including EOC Tests
tests are an educational assessment mandated by the Outstanding Schools
Act of 1993. As a result of this act, the State Board of Education
directed the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
(DESE) to identify the knowledge, skills, and competencies that Missouri
students should acquire by the time they complete high school and to
evaluate student progress toward those academic standards. The MAP
includes the following assessments:
- Communication Arts, Grades 3-8 and 10
- Mathematics, Grades 3-8 and 9
