Hello! I was curious how different middle and high schools handle students needing extra time to complete a section of MAP Growth. My school is in it's first year giving the MAP Test. When we gave it in the Fall, we allotted a little over an hour for the students to take each test. Most students did not finish, so following the testing days we spent over two weeks pulling kids from their classes to complete their test(s). Some kids missed a lot of class time to get it all done. We are now planning for winter testing. We are extending our testing windows from an hour to 80 minutes, which should help, but I know there will still be students who do not finish. Does anyone have a better suggestion of how to handle students who need extra time to finish?
