Update on AMP test scores
Since this was the first year of the Alaska Measures of Progress (AMP) test, scores will be delayed due to the state of Alaska’s standard setting process to determine the range of scores for each level of achievement. Scores are expected in October after the process of standard setting is complete. According to the state, AMP scores will be more timely in future years of AMP administration.
If you have questions about AMP testing, please talk to your child’s teacher or school principal.
Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Start building this habit in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Good attendance will help children do well in high school, college and at work.
