Parents of 3rd-grade students please look at the important dates that are upcoming for the 3rd-grade Reading Assessment.

The Literacy-Based Promotion Act requires all 3rd-grade public school students to pass a reading test in order qualify for promotion to the 4th grade.

The reading portion of the Mississippi Academic Assessment Program (MAAP) English Language Arts (ELA) test will determine whether students meet the requirement for promotion. Students who do not meet the promotion requirement on the MAAP test will be given two retesting opportunities on an alternative test. The alternative test is called the 3rd Grade Reading Alternative Assessment.
