The Kauffman School is committed to transparency in reporting on the academic progress of its students – we will "show that we know." The results reported here reflect scores from students enrolled at the school when end-of-year testing was administered.
The school's first year NWEA-MAP results indicate significant academic growth in Reading, Math, and Science (an average of two or more grade levels in each subject). MO-MAP results indicate students should be on pace to meet the school's target of at least 75 percent of students enrolled for three consecutive years scoring proficient/advanced on all subjects of the MO-MAP tests.

How the Kauffman School Measures Student Performance
The Kauffman School measures academic performance using three key assessments:
• The Missouri Assessment Program (MO-MAP)
Required state assessment administered by all district and charter public schools in the state.
• The Northwest Evaluation Association's Measures of Academic Progress (NWEA-MAP)
Nationally norm-referenced, growth-measured exams administered at the beginning and end of each school year – used to assess student academic growth over the course of a single school year.
• Strategic Teaching and Evaluation of Progress (STEP) Literacy Program
Literacy development program and assessment tool designed to target individual student literacy needs, develop skills, and track literacy growth over time.
