MAP, Spring 1999: Communication Arts, Released Items & Rubrics, Grade 3.
Missouri State Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education, Jefferson City.
This document deals with testing in communication arts for third graders in Missouri public schools. A story from "Highlights for Children" ("The Night the Lights Went Out") was used as a passage for Session 1 of the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) test. The test provides five reading and writing activities from the story. Next, a passage from the poem "This Big Cat" (from "This Big Cat and Other Cats I've Known") and items 13 and 14, to be answered by the students, are presented. Following this, the students are given a writing prompt, including directions on how to write and revise a first draft and a writer's checklist. The document then offers scoring guides for the Session 1 items and the writing prompt in Session 2. (NKA)
