Student Success & Academic Outcomes

At Shu Ren International School, our goal is for students to become lifelong learners motivated to seek answers to probing questions beyond our schoolwide learner outcomes guide. Our approach to learning and life at Shu Ren and our curriculum lays the groundwork for students to excel at all levels. Standardized tests like the MAP and STAMP Assessments show that Shu Ren students outperform the national average at all elementary grade levels!

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)

MAP measures a student’s academic achievement and growth in reading and mathematics over time. Together with other classroom-based information, MAP results can help teachers make instructional decisions that match each child's needs.


Mandarin Standards-Based Measure of Proficiency (STAMP™)

Avant’s proficiency tests are used worldwide to measure student learning outcomes,  illustrate program quality, and create a path to the Seal of Biliteracy. The Avant STAMP™ language test was created to improve language-learning outcomes and support excellence in language programs. STAMP™ enables teachers to effectively improve proficiency outcomes and empowers administrators to make better-informed decisions about curriculum and teacher training by delivering accurate data on students’ proficiency levels.
