Teachers are learning to grade MAP tests at locations across the state, including two in southwest Missouri.
During the workshops, which are put on by the State Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and test publisher McGraw-Hill, teachers score a portion of the MAP tests taken this spring.
According to a news release from the state department, teachers train for four days before beginning to grade tests. A large portion of the tests is graded electronically, but human scoring must be done for essay-type short-response questions.
In Southwest Missouri, workshops are being held June 7-24 at Webb City High School and at Central High School in Springfield.
