What is a M.A.P. Test?
Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) tests are aligned with the Wisconsin State Standards, the tests are completed on the computer by students in the 1st through 10th grade each fall and spring. These tests are great because they adjust their questions based on individual student responses. They are able to correctly measure what a child knows and what they need to learn. The tests provide results that can be used to:
Identify the skills and concepts individual students have learned.
Diagnose instructional needs.
Monitor academic growth over time.
Make data-driven decisions at the classroom, school, and district levels.
MAP tests measure academic growth over time, independent of grade level or age. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders take the M.A.P. tests in September, January and May, if you would like more information please click on the following link http://www.nwea.org/assessments/studentgrowth.asp
