Standardized Testing

MAP Growth & ACT Options for Kindergarten – Grade 12

The Mercy Ships Academy consistently offers two forms of standardized testing — MAP Growth and ACT — for students in kindergarten to Grade 12. We recognize that, as an international school with a curriculum designed to meet the educational needs of a diverse international student body, using U.S. norm-referenced tests has its limitations. However, these forms of standardized testing do provide a valuable measure and intentional accountability that can strengthen our academic program when the data is analyzed and used in context.
