Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)


What is MAP?

    MAP assessments are computer adaptive achievement tests in Mathematics, Reading and Language. The computer adjusts the difficulty of the questions so that each student takes a unique test. The difficulty of each question is based on how well the student has answered previous questions.

Purpose of MAP:

    MAP is a norm-referenced measure of students growth over time.

Uses of MAP:

    MAP tests are based on continuum of skills in Mathematics, Reading and Language from low skill levels to high skill levels.

   MAP reports allow teachers to better target instructions based on students' strengths and needs.

    MAP is an assessment FOR learning, not OF learning. Following each testing period, parents will receive a report showing their child’s growth.

    Administration will receive quick, detailed, and accurate information about the student’s academic growth.
