MAPT Score Report Survey

January 28, 2013

Dear Program Director:

The MAPT Score Reports are meant to provide useful and helpful information about how adult learners performed on the MAPT for Math and Reading. While a number of practitioners have attended trainings, many have not, and of those who have been trained, some do not use the reports. Both ACLS and UMASS are committed to making the score reports as useful, accessible and meaningful as possible.

With that in mind, the Center for Educational Assessment at UMASS Amherst has developed a brief survey to determine how the reports are being used (or not being used) and the reasons affecting their use. All survey responses are strictly anonymous. We urge you and your staff to respond honestly to the survey so that ACLS can make all possible adjustments to increase the use and usefulness of the reports. Please note that the survey will close on February 8th.

The survey may be accessed here:

If you offer ABE instruction , please fill this survey out yourself, and also forward it to your staff (teachers, counselors, anyone who might use the MAPT score reports) and ask them to respond to the survey. We welcome as many responses as possible. The feedback received will be used to improve the score reports.

Thank you for completing the survey and also for asking your staff to complete the survey.

Sincerely,
With Literacy in Mind.

Anne Serino
ABE State Director
