Brookhaven Innovation Academy will use the Northwest Evaluation Association’s Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) Assessment in order to monitor student growth in the areas of math and reading over time. MAP is a computerized adaptive test which measures student achievement and growth on an equal interval scale called a Rausch Unit. All students will participate in the MAP assessment in the fall, winter and spring of each year. Results will be used to:

  • Measure the growth of every student over time regardless of on, above, or below grade-level performance.
  • Create and reinforce evidence-informed instructional practices.
  • Engage students in goal setting
  • Evaluate programs and identify professional development needs.
  • Compare and predict student achievement and growth over time using normative and growth data.

​Georgia Department of Education Assessment System

Pursuant to the Charter Schools Act, charter schools, as public schools, are subject to the Georgia statewide accountability assessments. The purpose of the Georgia Student Assessment Program is to measure student achievement of the state-adopted content standards and inform efforts to improve teaching and learning. Results of the assessment program are utilized to identify students failing to achieve mastery of content, to provide teachers with feedback about instructional practice, and to assist the school in identifying strengths and weaknesses in order to establish priorities in planning educational programs.

The Georgia assessment program includes customized summative criterion-referenced tests at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. The following statewide assessments will be administered and utilized according to GaDOE policies, timelines, and procedures:

  • Georgia Milestones Assessment System
  • ACCESS for ELLs
  • Georgia Alternate Assessment (GAA)
Homes For Our Home (HFOH)

Unlike traditional schools, BIA receives no funding for facilities, leaving the school at a distinct financial disadvantage.  School leadership has chosen to turn this adversity into an opportunity by adopting a signature fundraising program that builds on teaching community outreach to children while incorporating Project-based Learning.
