The 2016 Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) scores have been released and the results show Fox C-6 students well ahead in proficiency compared to the rest of the state. MAP scores indicate a student’s grasp of content areas such as English/Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Scores of proficient and advanced illustrate success in those subject areas.

The following table compares the percentage of Fox C-6 students with proficient and advanced scores to the State of Missouri average:

Additionally, three of the District’s schools have been highlighted for achieving top scores compared to other schools throughout the state:

Guffey Elementary - Top scores in Mathematics.

Fox Middle - Top score in Science. (FMS was the number 1 school in the Science content area in Missouri)

Ridgewood Middle - Top scores in Mathematics, Science, and English/Language Arts.

The 2016 MAP scores are promising for the entire District, considering the 2016 grade-level exams in Math and English/Language Arts (ELA) were completely new tests with new test items and new cut scores (i.e. below basic, basic, proficient and advanced). “We are incredibly proud of our students and teachers for once again displaying grit and excellence,” said Superintendent Dr. Jim Wipke. “I’ve said it before but we have some of the finest students and teachers in the country,” he continued. “With the proper support, nothing is out of reach for Fox C-6 students.”
