Students in grades 1-7 take the Northwest Evaluation Association's (NWEA) Measures of Academic Progress™ (MAP) assessment in fall, winter, and spring. We use these assessments, along with a host of other formative and summative assessments, to determine instructional levels and to measure academic growth in core areas throughout the school year, and from year to year. The MAP tests also serve as one of our district common assessments in math, reading and language usage.
Please review the links below to learn more about interpreting your child's results. The MAP tests are unique in that they are administered online and are computer adaptive, which means they adapt to your child's level of learning. The purpose of this assessment is to provide data on students' growth over time so that teachers can use the data to inform instruction and students can use the information to see their individual progress.
If you have any questions, please contact your child's teacher or building administrator.
