As schools prepare their students for state standardized assessments, more and more schools are turning to other standardized assessments to help predict performance on state assessments. One such predictor assessment is the Measures of Academic Progress. This study looked at the predictive relationship existing between the Measures of Academic Progress and the Kansas Computerized Assessments and found that there is a statistically significant relationship between the two tests, but the strength of that relationship, as well as the validity of the two tests, raise some questions for further study.
