Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments are computerized tests used to measure student progress and growth in school. SCSD#1 tests all kindergarten through ninth grade students in both reading and math. Teachers use the results from the MAP tests to customize instruction for students. Results from MAP tests are used by Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) to monitor progress of students participating in before and after school programs as well as summer school.

The Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) are short (one minute) fluency measures used to regularly monitor the development of early literacy and early reading skills. SCSD#1 uses these assessments in kindergarten through third grade as well as with identified fourth through sixth grade students.
