    Manistee Area Public Schools Adaptive Classroom

    This year Manistee Area Public Schools is taking a true step in the latest instructional best practice by implementing an Interim Assessment process. Simply put, an interim assessment is one that is utilized to give the teacher information about how students are learning recently taught material.  The MAPS Interim Assessment Project (IAP) is a way to:
    1. Ensure student mastery of the Common Core (CCSS) with the right combination of CCSS-driven content, technology and services. 
    2. Streamline the planning, creating and assigning of custom district assessments.
    3. Gauge student progress using high-quality content written to the CCSS.
    4. Gain deep insight into student performance with intuitive reporting and analysis. 
    5. Target student needs in the moment with tools to create instructional plans - including reteaching - for the whole class or a small group.
