On March 19, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) announced the spring 2020 Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) assessments would not be administered, including Grade-Level (GLA), End-of-Course (EOC) and Missouri Assessment Program-Alternate (MAP-A) exams. Further, with State Board of Education approval, DESE removed attendance from the state accountability system for the 2019-20 school year. A number of third-party vendors also were limited in the number of assessments that could be administered (e.g. ACT®) or eliminated their spring testing entirely (e.g. PLTW). As a result of these changes, DESE has determined that an Annual Performance Report (APR) will not be generated for the 2019-20 school year.
